GraphQL API

The most powerful API for accessing your WebAssembly modules, now completely open for all to use

All WAPM services (accessible via both the registry frontend wapm.io and the CLI client wapm-cli) use the WAPM GraphQL API to interact with and retrieve data from the WAPM Registry.

What is GraphQL?

GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.

How I can use the WAPM API?

The WAPM GraphQL API (and the GraphiQL IDE) can be accessed here:

Did you know...?

​WebAssembly.sh is using the WAPM GraphQL API to automatically expose the WASI modules and commands in the online shell

Examples

Let's see now a few things that we can do with it!

Get a Package Version

We can do a POST to https://registry.wapm.io/graphql with the the following as the query POST field:

{
getPackageVersion(name: "python") {
version
repository
homepage
distribution {
downloadUrl
size
}
}
}

Which should return something similar to:

{
"data": {
"getPackageVersion": {
"version": "0.1.0",
"repository": "https://github.com/wapm-packages/python",
"homepage": null,
"distribution": {
"downloadUrl": "https://registry-cdn.wapm.io/packages/_/python/python-0.1.0.tar.gz",
"size": 5097541
}
}
}
}

Get all Packages for a given Interface

If we want to search all the packages published that have certain interface (for example, WASI), we can do a POST to https://registry.wapm.io/graphql with the the following as the query POST field:

{
getInterfaceVersion(name: "wasi", version: "latest") {
interface {
name
description
}
packageVersions {
edges {
node {
version
package {
name
}
distribution {
downloadUrl
}
}
}
}
}
}

Which should return something similar to:

{
"data": {
"getInterfaceVersion": {
"interface": {
"name": "wasi",
"description": "The WebAssembly System Interface. WASI is a modular system interface for WebAssembly. It’s focused on security and portability."
},
"packageVersions": {
"edges": [
{
"node": {
"version": "0.1.0",
"package": {
"name": "_/python"
},
"distribution": {
"downloadUrl": "https://registry-cdn.wapm.io/packages/_/python/python-0.1.0.tar.gz"
}
}
},
{
"node": {
"version": "0.0.2",
"package": {
"name": "JeremyLikness/wasi-ubasic"
},
"distribution": {
"downloadUrl": "https://registry-cdn.wapm.io/packages/JeremyLikness/wasi-ubasic/wasi-ubasic-0.0.2.tar.gz"
}
}
},
{
"node": {
"version": "0.4.6",
"package": {
"name": "vshymanskyy/wasm3"
},
"distribution": {
"downloadUrl": "https://registry-cdn.wapm.io/packages/vshymanskyy/wasm3/wasm3-0.4.6.tar.gz"
}
}
}
]
}
}
}
}
