Usage

import { 
  GraphQLString, 
  GraphQLSchema, 
  GraphQLObjectType, 
  graphql 
} from 'graphql';

import { 
  DirectiveLocation 
} from 'graphql/type/directives';

import { 
  GraphQLCustomDirective, 
  applySchemaCustomDirectives 
} from 'graphql-custom-directive';

// Define a directive that upper case the result

const GraphQLCustomDuplicateDirective = new GraphQLCustomDirective({
  name: 'toUpperCase',
  description:
    'change the case of a string to uppercase',
  locations: [
    DirectiveLocation.FIELD
  ],
  resolve(resolve) {
    return resolve()
        .then(result => result.toUpperCase());
  }
});

const schema = new GraphQLSchema({
  directives: [
    GraphQLCustomDuplicateDirective
  ],
  query: new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Query',
    fields: {
      value: {
        type: GraphQLString,
        resolve: () => 'test'
      }
    }
  })
});

applySchemaCustomDirectives(schema);

graphql(schema, `{ value @toUpperCase }`)
  .then(({ result, errors }) => {
     console.log(result); 
     // will print { value: "TEST" }
  });

Options

GraphQLCustomDirective({
  // name to be used in placing the directive (e.g @duplicate) 
  // [*required]
  name: String = 'duplicate',
  
  // explain the directive usage
  description: String = 'duplicate the string sperating them with space',
  
  // areas in the query you can place the directive 
  // [*required]
  locations: [String] = [ DirectiveLocation.FIELD ],
  
  // object of passed variables from directive to the resolve method
  args: Object = { by: { type: GraphQLInt, description: "foo bar" } } ),
  
  // method that hooks the execution and transforms the input to a new output
  // arguments:
  // 1. resolve - a field promise that will result in the field's value 
  //  (either the raw field or the previous directive output).
  // 2. source - a parent object of execution field result.
  // 3. args - a object of directive arguments defined in query exectution.
  // 4. context - a value to pass as the context to the graphql() function.
  // 5. info - a collection of information about the current execution state.
  resolve: Function = (resolve, source, args, context, info) => 
            { return resolve.then(input => input); }
})

Examples

This show the ability to configure directive on the query side or in the schema side

import { 
  GraphQLString,
  GraphQLNotNull,
  GraphQLSchema, 
  GraphQLObjectType, 
  graphql 
} from 'graphql';

import { 
  DirectiveLocation 
} from 'graphql/type/directives';

import { 
  GraphQLCustomDirective, 
  applySchemaCustomDirectives 
} from 'graphql-custom-directive';

// Define a directive that duplicates the input

const GraphQLCustomDuplicateDirective = new GraphQLCustomDirective({
  name: 'duplicate',
  description:
    'duplicate the string sperating them with space',
  locations: [
    DirectiveLocation.FIELD
  ],
  args: {
    by: {
      type: new GraphQLNotNull(GraphQLInt),
      description: 'the times to duplicate the string'
    }
  },
  resolve(resolve, source, { by }, context, info) {
    return resolve().then(result => {    
      let times = [];
      
      for (let i = 0; i < by; i++) {
        times.push(result);
      }
      
      return times.join(' ');
    });
  }
});

// Use directive in a query

const schema = new GraphQLSchema({
  directives: [
    GraphQLCustomDuplicateDirective
  ],
  query: new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Query',
    fields: {
      input: {
        type: GraphQLString,
        args: {
          value: {
            type: GraphQLString
          }
        },
        resolve: (source, {value}) => value
      }
    }
 })
});

applySchemaCustomDirectives(schema);

graphql(schema, `{ input(value: "test") @duplicate(by:2) }`)
  .then(({ result, errors }) => {
     console.log(result); 
     // will print { input: "test test" }
  });
  
// Or use the directive in a schema

const schema2 = new GraphQLSchema({
  directives: [
    GraphQLCustomDuplicateDirective
  ],
  query:  new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Query',
    fields: {
      input: {
        type: GraphQLString,
        args: {
          value: {
            type: GraphQLString
          }
        },
        directives: {
          duplicate: { // directive name
            by: 2 // directive args
          }
        },
        resolve: (source, {value}) => value
      }
    }
 })
});

applySchemaCustomDirectives(schema2);

graphql(schema2, `{ input(value: "test") }`)
  .then(({ result, errors }) => {
     console.log(result); 
     // will print { input: "test test" }
  });
