A collection of Combine publishers for the Apollo iOS client.


The extension to ApolloClientProtocol (in the aptly named ApolloClientExtensions) includes methods whose inputs mirror the existing ApolloClientProtocol operation methods. Instead of including a result handler, though, these methods return Combine publishers that deliver the results of the operation to subscribers.

When cancel() is invoked on a subscription, the underlying Apollo operation is also cancelled.

fetchPublisher, performPublisher, uploadPublisher, and clearCachePublisher will send a completion when the operation has completed.

import ApolloCombine

let client = ApolloClient(...)

let fetchSubscription = client.fetchPublisher(query: MyQuery(), cachePolicy: .fetchIgnoringCacheData)
  .sink(receiveCompletion: { completion in
    // handle .finished or .failure 
    }, receiveValue: { graphQLResult in
      // handle returned fetch data      

// Cancelling the Combine subscription will also cancel the underlying Apollo operation

watchPublisher and subscribePublisher will not send a completion, instead delivering data and errors as the value of the subscription. This allows these operations to remain open after an error has been encountered. As such, it is important to explicitly cancel these subscriptions when you are done with them to avoid memory leaks.

import ApolloCombine

let client = ApolloClient(...)

let watchSubscription = client.watchPublisher(query: MyQuery())
  .sink(receiveValue: { operationResult in
    switch operationResult {
    case .success(let graphQLResult):
      // handle returned data
    case .failure(let error): 
      // handle error     

// Don't forget to cancel when you're done

Release Notes

21 weeks ago
  • Updated method signatures to match current Apollo operation signatures. The main difference is the addition of callbackQueue to the watch publisher. This parameter was added in v0.43.0 of the Apollo iOS client, so dependencies have been changed to reflect this. Fixes #9
