ci status code coverage Unsafe Rust forbidden version docs downloads PRs Welcome

This crate uses #![forbid(unsafe_code)] to ensure everything is implemented in 100% safe Rust.

struct Query;

impl Query {
  fn howdy(&self) -> &'static str {

async fn main() {
    let schema = Schema::build(Query, EmptyMutation, EmptySubscription).finish();

    let app = Route::new()

    println!("GraphiQL: http://localhost:8000");


  • Fully supports async/await
  • Type safety
  • Rustfmt friendly (Procedural Macro)
  • Custom scalars
  • Minimal overhead
  • Easy integration (poem, actix_web, tide, warp, rocket ...)
  • Upload files (Multipart request)
  • Subscriptions (WebSocket transport)
  • Custom extensions
  • Error extensions
  • Limit query complexity/depth
  • Batch queries
  • Apollo Persisted Queries
  • Apollo Tracing extension
  • Apollo Federation(v2)

Note: Minimum supported Rust version: 1.59.0 or later


All examples are in the sub-repository, located in the examples directory.

git submodule update # update the examples repo
cd examples && cargo run --bin [name]
