Overview

An Interface contains a collection of types which implement some of the same fields.

Interfaces can have fields, defined with field, just like an object type.

Objects which implement this field inherit field definitions from the interface. An object type can override the inherited definition by redefining that field.

Examples:

An interface with three fields

DeviceInterface = GraphQL::InterfaceType.define do
  name("Device")
  description("Hardware devices for computing")

  field :ram, types.String
  field :processor, ProcessorType
  field :release_year, types.Int
end

Implementing an interface with an object type

Laptoptype = GraphQL::ObjectType.define do
  interfaces [DeviceInterface]
end
