Package API


GraphServer is an for communicating with the sv-graphql system. It helps eliminate some of the bloat of individual graphQL calls and makes it a little easier to work with.

  • args
    • graphUrl - string - Fully qualified URL pointing to the graphURL server.
    • context - object - Context object used for handling token/acct_id
      • acct_id - string - The acct_id that the user is attempting to access. acct_id is required for any endpoints on admin.
      • token - string - The token returned from the auth system. Token is required for accessing any of the non-login mechanics.
    • prefixes - array of class - Prefixes which encasulate the behavior of the graphQL apis.

In most cases you will be setting the context at runtime. If so, manually update the context via setting graphServer.context.acct_id = "x".

Available prefixes, see the following packages to install the prefixes.

const { GraphServer } = require("@simpleview/sv-graphql-client");
const graphServer = new GraphServer({
    graphUrl : GRAPH_URL,
    prefixes : [PrefixOne, PrefixTwo]

The endpoints on the graphServer prefix should, in general, match 1-to-1 with the arguments and syntax of the GraphQL schema browser.


This function will take a graphQL response and convert null values to undefined. It can be helpful for trimming away fields that weren't returned from graph.

This does an by reference modification of the object. It does not return a clone.

  • obj - object - The object that you wish to clean.
const { nullToUndefined } = require("@simpleview/sv-graphql-client");
const result = await someGraphCall();


Wrapper function to make it easier to talk to sv-graphql directly.

  • args
    • query - string - The graphQL query string. Usually best passed with JS template tag syntax.
    • variables - obj - If you're query utilizes variables, pass them on this object.
    • url - string - The URL of the graphQL endpoint.
    • token - string - The token which will be passed on the Authorization header as a Bearer token.
    • headers - obj - An object of headers to append to the request
    • key - string - Whether to reach and return a specific sub-key of the return.
    • clean - boolean - Whether to automatically run nullToUndefined on the result set to clean it.
const { query } = require("@simpleview/sv-graphql-client");
const result = await query({
    query : `
        query($token: String) {
            auth {
    variables : {
        token : "my fake token"
    url : "https://graphql.simpleviewinc.com/"


Simple function for testing if a function is a plain JS object.
