Querying your API (client)
Other languages

Raw HTTP access to your Fuse API

Fuse creates a standard GraphQL API under the hood, which means you can use any HTTP client to construct a request and fetch data from your API.

Note that we strongly recommend using a GraphQL client if one is available. Practically all popular mobile and web frameworks and languages have a GraphQL client.

How to query your GraphQL API via HTTP

Fundamentally, requests to GraphQL APIs are POST requests with a JSON body. The JSON body contains a query field, which is a string containing the GraphQL query, and an optional variables field, which is a JSON object containing the variables used in the query.


POST http://localhost:4000/graphql

Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json

  "query": "query getUser($id: ID!) { user(id: $id) { name } }",
  "variables": { "id": 1 }
