Overview

Represents a collection of related values. By convention, enum names are SCREAMING_CASE_NAMES, but other identifiers are supported too.

You can use as return types or as inputs.

By default, enums are passed to resolve functions as the strings that identify them, but you can provide a custom Ruby value with the value: keyword.

Examples:

An enum of programming languages

LanguageEnum = GraphQL::EnumType.define do
  name "Languages"
  description "Programming languages for Web projects"
  value("PYTHON", "A dynamic, function-oriented language")
  value("RUBY", "A very dynamic language aimed at programmer happiness")
  value("JAVASCRIPT", "Accidental lingua franca of the web")
end

Using an enum as a return type

field :favoriteLanguage, LanguageEnum, "This person's favorite coding language"
# ...
# In a query:
Schema.execute("{ coder(id: 1) { favoriteLanguage } }")
# { "data" => { "coder" => { "favoriteLanguage" => "RUBY" } } }

Defining an enum input

field :coders, types[CoderType] do
  argument :knowing, types[LanguageEnum]
  resolve ->(obj, args, ctx) {
    Coder.where(language: args[:knowing])
  }
end

Using an enum as input

{
  # find coders who know Python and Ruby
  coders(knowing: [PYTHON, RUBY]) {
    name
    hourlyRate
  }
}

Enum whose values are different in Ruby-land

GraphQL::EnumType.define do
  # ...
  # use the `value:` keyword:
  value("RUBY", "Lisp? Smalltalk?", value: :rb)
end

# Now, resolve functions will receive `:rb` instead of `"RUBY"`
field :favoriteLanguage, LanguageEnum
resolve ->(obj, args, ctx) {
  args[:favoriteLanguage] # => :rb
}

Enum whose values are different in ActiveRecord-land

class Language < ActiveRecord::BaseType
  enum language: {
    rb: 0
  }
end

# Now enum type should be defined as
GraphQL::EnumType.define do
  # ...
  # use the `value:` keyword:
  value("RUBY", "Lisp? Smalltalk?", value: 'rb')
end
