Entity GraphQL

A modern .NET Core GraphQL library

1. Define your schema

EntityGraphQL was designed to get you up and running quickly. Expose your existing object graph (include an EF DbContext) or build your own schema.

EntityGraphQL can use reflection to generate your schema from your existing object graph - you can use attributes and options to control what is generated. Or you can create one from scratch only adding the types and fields you require.

Learn more about schema creation

public class DemoContext : DbContext
public DbSet<Movie> Movies { get; set; }
public DbSet<Actor> Actors { get; set; }

public class Movie
public int Id { get; set; }
public string Name { get; set; }
public Genre Genre { get; set; }
// all the rest...

2. Register and customize your schema

EntityGraphQL integrates easily into ASP.NET allowing you to provide the customization you need.

You can also use EntityGraphQL directly without ASP.NET (no dependency on EF either) or in a more custom way in your own controller. You can also define multiple schemas that provide different access or functionality.

public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, DemoContext db)
app.UseEndpoints(endpoints =>

3. Query your API

You're now set to query your API. Add mutations, connect other data sources and secure your data.

EntityGraphQL provides a rich set of features for you to build out your APIs as you add features.
