Looking for the GraphiQL Docs?: This is the root of the monorepo! The full GraphiQL docs are located at
GraphiQL is the reference implementation of this monorepo, GraphQL IDE, an official project under the GraphQL Foundation. The code uses the permissive MIT license.
Whether you want a simple GraphiQL IDE instance for your server, or a more advanced web or desktop GraphQL IDE experience for your framework or plugin, or you want to build an IDE extension or plugin, you've come to the right place!
The purpose of this monorepo is to give the GraphQL Community:
- a to-specification official language service (see: API Docs)
- a comprehensive LSP server and CLI service for use with IDEs
- a codemirror mode
- a monaco mode (in the works)
- an example of how to use this ecosystem with GraphiQL.
- examples of how to implement or extend GraphiQL.

Browser & Runtime Support
Many of these packages need to work in multiple environments.
By default, all typescript packages target
graphql-language-service-cli are made
for the node runtime, so they target
codemirror-graphql and the
graphiql browser bundle use the
.browserslistrc, which targets modern browsers to keep
bundle size small and keep the language services performant where async/await is
used, and especially to avoid the requirement of
special babel configuration.
