Build Status Gem Version Code Climate Test Coverage built with love

A Ruby implementation of GraphQL.


Install from RubyGems by adding it to your Gemfile, then bundling.

# Gemfile
gem 'graphql'
$ bundle install

Getting Started

$ rails generate graphql:install

Or, see "Getting Started".


I also sell GraphQL::Pro which provides several features on top of the GraphQL runtime, including authorization, monitoring plugins and static queries. Besides that, Pro customers get email support and an opportunity to support graphql-ruby's development!


  • Implement the GraphQL spec & support a Relay front end
  • Provide idiomatic, plain-Ruby API with similarities to reference implementation where possible
  • Support Ruby on Rails and Relay
