Project relation with custom resolver logic

Nexus Prisma generates default GraphQL resolvers for your model relation fields. However you may want to run custom logic in the resolver. This is easy to do. The following show a few ways.

  1. Wrap Style You can access the default resolver within your own custom resolver.

    objectType({
      name: User.$name,
      definition(t) {
        t.field(User.id)
        t.field({
          ...User.posts,
          async resolve(...args) {
            // Your custom before-logic here
            const result = await User.posts.resolve(...args)
            // Your custom after-logic here
            return result
          },
        })
      },
    })
  2. Replace Style You can simply opt out of using the default resolver completely:

    objectType({
      name: User.$name,
      definition(t) {
        t.field(User.id)
        t.field({
          ...User.posts,
          async resolve(...args) {
            // Your custom logic here
          },
        })
      },
    })

Supply custom scalars to your GraphQL schema

The following is a brief example how you could add your own custom GraphQL custom scalars to satisfy Nexus Prisma. Note that most of the time using the defaults exported by nexus-prisma/scalars will probably be good enough for you.

import { GraphQLScalarType } from 'graphql'
import { JSONObjectResolver, DateTimeResolver } from 'graphql-scalars'
import { asNexusMethod, makeSchema } from 'nexus'
 
const jsonScalar = new GraphQLScalarType({
  ...JSONObjectResolver,
  // Override the default 'JsonObject' name with one that matches what Nexus Prisma expects.
  name: 'Json',
})
 
const dateTimeScalar = new GraphQLScalarType(DateTimeResolver)
 
makeSchema({
  types: [asNexusMethod(jsonScalar, 'json'), asNexusMethod(dateTimeScalar, 'dateTime')],
})
