🔧 Installation

Apollo Elements is distributed through npm, the node package manager. To install a copy of the latest version in your project's node_modules directory, install npm on your system then run the following command in your project's root directory:

npm install --save @apollo-elements/core

👩‍🚀 Usage

See our docs on setting up Apollo client so your components can fetch their data.

First, let's define our GraphQL query.

query HelloQuery {
  helloWorld {

Read our docs on working with GraphQL files during development and in production for more info, and be sure to read about generating TypeScript types from GraphQL to enhance your developer experience and reduce bugs.

Next, we'll define our UI component. Import the controller, query, and types:

import { ApolloQueryController } from '@apollo-elements/core';
import { LitElement, html } from 'lit';
import { customElement } from 'lit/decorators.js';

import { HelloQuery } from './Hello.query.graphql';

Then define your component's template. Make sure to set the query field, so your component starts fetching data automatically.

export class HelloWorldElement extends LitElement {
  query = new ApolloQueryController(this, HelloQuery);

  render() {
    return html`
      <what-spin-such-loader ?active="${this.query.loading}"></what-spin-such-loader>
      this.query.error ? html`
        <h1>😢 Such Sad, Much Error! 😰</h1>
    : html`
          ${this.query.data?.helloWorld.greeting ?? 'Hello'},
          ${this.query.data?.helloWorld.name ?? 'Friend'}!

❓ FAQs

Is this package only for Lit users?

No! You can use these controllers on any object that implements the ReactiveControllerHost interface, even vanilla HTMLElement by way of the ControllerHostMixin

import { ControllerHostMixin } from '@apollo-elements/mixins/controller-host-mixin';
import { ApolloQueryController } from '@apollo-elements/core/apollo-query-controller';

customElements.define('hello-world', class HelloWorldElement extends ControllerHostMixin(HTMLElement) {
  query = new ApolloQueryController(this, HelloQuery);

  update() {
    const greeting = this.query.data?.helloWorld.greeting ?? 'Hello';
    const name = this.query.data?.helloWorld.name ?? 'Friend';
    // Just for demo purposes, Don't actually use innerHTML!
    this.innerHTML = `<p>${greeting}, ${name}!</p>`;
