Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Readme

helix-flare

helix-flare helps you build GraphQL services on Cloudflare Workers® in an instant.

With help of the great library graphql-helix this is made possible.

Features

  • Build GraphQL server on Cloudflare Workers in seconds
  • Delegate execution to Durable Objects. Workers will only act as a proxy.
  • Have one schema, resolve some things in your DO, others in the Worker
  • Add middlewares and context
  • Live subscriptions (over server-sent events)
  • Easy to use with envelop
  • Full type safety with Typescript

Upcoming

  • Combine multiple worker to one endpoint (stitch)

Installation

yarn add helix-flare

## or

npm install --save helix-flare

API

helixFlare(request: Request, schema: GraphQLSchema)

Returns: Promise<Response>

This will take a request from a worker (or durable object) and return a response via GraphQL.

All you need is:

import helixFlare from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'

export default {
  async fetch(request: Request) {
    const typeDefs = /* GraphQL */ `
      type Query {
        hello: String!
      }
    `
    const schema = makeExecutableSchema({
      typeDefs,
      resolvers: {
        Query: { user: () => 'Hello World 🌍' },
      },
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  },
}

With just a few lines you got your GraphQL server up and running.

Example call to worker:

const workerURL = 'https://my.worker.dev/graphql'

fetch(workerURL, {
  body: JSON.stringify({ query: '{ hello }' }),
  method: 'POST',
  headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' },
})

// ➜ 'Hello World 🌍'

Head to the GraphQL docs for more information on how to build a GraphQL server.

createExecutor(request, selectDurableObject)

Allows you to resolve a query by forwarding the request to a durable object. The durable object can be selected by inspecting the graphql query in the selectDurableObject callback.

Returns: AsyncExecutor

request: Request

The request passed to the worker or durable object.

selectDurableObject: (args, context) => Promise<DurableObjectStub>

With this callback function you can select which durable object this request should be delegated to.

import helixFlare, { createExecutor } from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'
import { wrapSchema } from '@graphql-tools/wrap'

export default {
  async fetch(request, env) {
    const schema = wrapSchema({
      schema: makeExecutableSchema({
        // type defs and resolvers here…
      }),
      // with this executor the requests will be delegated a durable object
      executor: createExecutor(request, async (args) => {
        return env.DURABLE_OBJECT.get(args.userId)
      }),
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  },
}

createSubscription(options)

Returns: [emitter, resolver]

Inspired by hooks this function returns an emitter and a resolver as a tuple. With the emitter you can publish new events to the client. The resolver can just be used as is and put into the resolvers of your schema.

topic

Type: string

An identifier for the subscription that is used internally.

resolve

Type: Function
Default: (value) => value

This is to make subscription emissions less verbose. See example below for more clarity.

getInitialValue

Type: Function
Default: undefined

import helixFlare, { createSubscription } from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'

export default {
  async fetch(request, env) {
    const [emit, resolver] = createSubscription({
      topic: 'comments',
    })

    const typeDefs = /* GraphQL */ `
      type Subscription {
        comments($id: ID!): [String!]!
      }
    `

    const schema = makeExecutableSchema({
      typeDefs,
      resolvers: {
        comments: {
          subscribe: resolver,
        },
      },
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)

    // Now you can emit new comments like so:
    emit({ comments: 'This is a new comment 💬' })
  },
}

To avoid repeating the need to emit the structure of the subscription resolver everytime you can use the resolve option:

const [emit, resolver] = createSubscription({
  topic: 'comments',
  resolve: (value) => ({ comments: value }),
})

// Now you can simply just emit the following
emit('This is a new comment 💬')

Usage with envelop

import helixFlare from 'helix-flare/envelop'
import { envelop, useSchema } from '@envelop/core'

const schema = `…`

const getEnvelopedFn = envelop({
  plugins: [
    useSchema(schema),
    // add other envelop plugins here…
  ],
})

// worker
export default {
  fetch(request: Request) {
    return helixFlare(request, getEnvelopedFn)
  },
}

Examples

import helixFlare from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'

export default {
  async fetch(request: Request) {
    const typeDefs = /* GraphQL */ `
      type Query {
        hello(name: String!): String!
      }
    `

    const schema = makeExecutableSchema({
      typeDefs,
      resolvers: {
        Query: {
          user: (_, { name }) => `Hello ${name}!`,
        },
      },
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  },
}
// worker.ts
import helixFlare, { createExecutor } from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'
import { wrapSchema } from '@graphql-tools/wrap'

const typeDefs = /* GraphQL */ `
  type Post {
    id: Int!
    title: String
    votes: Int
  }

  type Mutation {
    upvotePost(postId: Int!): Post
  }
`
export default {
  async fetch(request: Request, env: Env) {
    const schema = wrapSchema({
      schema: makeExecutableSchema({ typeDefs }),
      executor: createExecutor<{ postId?: string }>(request, async (args) => {
        if (!args.postId) {
          throw new Error('No postId argument found')
        }

        const doId = env.PostDurableObject.idFromString(args.postId)
        return env.PostDurableObject.get(doId)
      }),
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  },
}

Subscriptions work out of the box with SSE. They can be done in worker but will be used in durable objects most of the time.

Shared schema:

// schema.ts
const schema = /* GraphQL */ `
  type Post {
    id: Int!
    votes: Int
  }

  type Subscription {
    """
    Returns the positions for given live Id
    """
    subscribePostVotes(postId: Int!): Int!
  }

  type Mutation {
    upvotePost(postId: Int!): Post
  }
`
export default schema
// worker.ts
import helixFlare, { createExecutor } from 'helix-flare'
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'
import { wrapSchema } from '@graphql-tools/wrap'
import typeDefs from './schema'

export { Post } from './PostObject'

// ExportedHandler from `@cloudflare/workers-types`
type WorkerType = ExportedHandler<{ PostDurableObject: DurableObjectStub }>

const Worker: WorkerType = {
  async fetch(request, env) {
    const schema = wrapSchema({
      schema: makeExecutableSchema({ typeDefs }),
      executor: createExecutor(request, async (args, context) => {
        if (!args.postId) {
          throw new Error('No postId argument found')
        }

        const doId = env.PostDurableObject.idFromString(args.postId)

        return env.PostDurableObject.get(doId)
      }),
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  },
}

export default Worker
// PostObject.ts
import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema'
import { wrapSchema } from '@graphql-tools/wrap'
import helixFlare, { createExecutor, createSubscription } from 'helix-flare'
import typeDefs from './typedefs'

export class Post implements DurableObject {
  private likes = 0

  async fetch() {
    const [emitLikes, likesSubscriptionResolver] = createSubscription<
      number,
      { subscribePostVotes: number }
    >({
      topic: 'likes',
      resolve: (value) => ({ subscribePostVotes: value }),
      getInitialValue: () => this.likes,
    })

    const resolvers = {
      Mutation: {
        upvotePost: () => {
          this.likes++
          emitLikes(this.likes)

          return { likes: this.likes, id: this.state.id }
        },
      },
      Subscription: {
        subscribePostVotes: {
          subscribe: likesSubscriptionResolver,
        },
      },
    }

    const schema = makeExecutableSchema({
      resolvers,
      typeDefs,
    })

    return helixFlare(request, schema)
  }
}
