Encapsulate Transform

The encapsulate transform allow you to easily encapsulate a specific schema into a single field under the root type.

For instance, if your handler created a schema like this, named mySchema:

type Query {
something: String
type Mutation {
doSomething: String

The encapsulate transform will change your schema to this:

type Query {
mySchema: mySchemaQuery!
type Mutation {
mySchema: mySchemaMutation!
type mySchemaQuery {
something: String
type mySchemaMutation {
doSomething: String

This transformer is useful when you have multiple APIs in your Mesh, and you wish to have it wrapped with a name to have a better understanding on where each field is coming from.

To get started with this transform, install it from npm:

yarn add @graphql-mesh/transform-encapsulate

How to use?#
