GraphQL Fragments Example

GraphQL fragments are a way to reuse selections across multiple Operations. WunderGraph supports fragments out of the box.

If you want to try out WunderGraph and GraphQL fragments, check out the following example .


We have to distinguish two types of fragments. Not following these conventions will result in errors, as WunderGraph is not able to resolve the fragments correctly.

Local Fragments

Fragments can be defined in the same file as the GraphQL Operation. In this case, the fragment is only available to the "local" Operation.

Global Fragments

Fragments can also be defined globally in the .wundergraph/fragments directory. In this case, the fragment is available to all Operations.

Global fragments must be named *.graphql. The name of the fragment file is insignificant, the name of the fragment is.


# UserFragment.graphql
fragment User on User {

This fragment, although named UserFragment.graphql, is available to all Operations with the name User.
