SBT Configuration:

libraryDependencies += "org.sangria-graphql" %% "sangria" % "1.4.2"


libraryDependencies += "org.sangria-graphql" %% "sangria" % "2.0.0-RC1"

You can find an example application that uses akka-http with sangria here:


More info and the documentation can be found in the project home page:


I would also recommend you to check out http://try.sangria-graphql.org. It is an example of GraphQL server written with Play framework and Sangria. It also serves as a playground, where you can interactively execute GraphQL queries and play with some examples.

If you want to use sangria with react-relay framework, then you also may be interested in sangria-relay.

Sangria is a spec compliant GraphQL implementation, so it works out of the box with Apollo, Relay, GraphiQL and other GraphQL tools and libraries.

Hello World Example

In this example we will use circe JSON marshalling, so we also need to include following dependency:

libraryDependencies += "org.sangria-graphql" %% "sangria-circe" % "1.2.1"

The most simple Hello World application might look like this:

import sangria.schema._
import sangria.execution._
import sangria.macros._
import sangria.marshalling.circe._
import scala.concurrent.ExecutionContext.Implicits.global

val QueryType = ObjectType("Query", fields[Unit, Unit](
  Field("hello", StringType, resolve = _ => "Hello world!")

val schema = Schema(QueryType)

val query = graphql"{ hello }"

val result = Executor.execute(schema, query)

result.foreach(res => println(res.spaces2))

this example will print following result JSON:

  "data" : {
    "hello" : "Hello world!"

If you like the project and would like to support it or contribute to it, then you are very welcome to do so. You can spread the word and tweet about the project or even better - create a small blog post, video, example project and show how you use sangria and GraphQL. I'm pretty sure it would be interesting for many people.

Also you can contribute to the documentation or help others by answering questions on StackOverflow or joining discussions at the mailing list and gitter chat. It would be very helpful!

Not to mention the code itself. There is nothing more exciting than hacking some stuff together :) So please feel free to materialize your ideas in form of code and send pull requests!
