Fetch Plugin

The fetch plugin is both a very simple plugin and a critical one to villus inner workings. Because villus is built using a pipeline of plugins that perform some processing on a GraphQL operation.

The fetch plugin is the one that actually executes your queries and mutations against the GraphQL API which is why it is very important to either have a fetch or batch plugins or any similar plugins you may write on your own.

tip

The fetch plugin is one of the default plugins that are pre-configured with any villus client unless specified otherwise

Options

You can customize a few aspects of the fetch plugin:

import { useClient, fetch } from 'villus';

const fetchPlugin = fetch({
  // plugin options...
});

useClient({
  use: [fetchPlugin],
});

The available options are:

Code

You can check the source code for the fetch plugin and use it as a reference to build your own
