graphql graphql-ruby

CI Suite Gem Version

A Ruby implementation of GraphQL.


Install from RubyGems by adding it to your Gemfile, then bundling.

ruby # Gemfile gem 'graphql'

$ bundle install

Getting Started

$ rails generate graphql:install

After this, you may need to run bundle install again, as by default graphiql-rails is added on installation.

Or, see “Getting Started”.


I also sell GraphQL::Pro which provides several features on top of the GraphQL runtime, including:

Besides that, Pro customers get email support and an opportunity to support graphql-ruby’s development!


  • Implement the GraphQL spec & support a Relay front end
  • Provide idiomatic, plain-Ruby API with similarities to reference implementation where possible
  • Support Ruby on Rails and Relay

Getting Involved

  • Say hi & ask questions in the #graphql-ruby channel on Discord.
  • Report bugs by posting a description, full stack trace, and all relevant code in a GitHub issue.
  • Start hacking with the Development guide.
