Integrating Prisma with Fuse

Prisma (opens in a new tab) is a popular option to access SQL databases in a type-safe way in Node.js. Fetching data from an SQL database with Prisma in Fuse allows you to avoid having to type any underlying source type.

Getting the TypeScript types for a table

For example, given a prisma schema with a users table. We can create a UserNode without having to manually type the shape of the users table by using the generated User type:

import { node, NotFoundError, addQueryFields } from 'fuse'
import { User } from '@prisma/client'
import { prisma } from './db'
export const UserNode = node<User>({
  name: 'User',
  async load(ids) {
    // Query for the list of users with the `ids`
    const result = await prisma.user.findMany({
      where: {
        id: {
          in: ids
    return => result.find((x) => === id) || new NotFoundError('Could not find user.'));
  fields: (t) => ({
    name: t.exposeString('name'),

Paginated lists

Creating a paginated list with t.list requires returning both the list of nodes and the total count of nodes. Here is what that would look like with Prisma;

addQueryFields((t) => ({
  users: t.list({
    type: UserNode,
    nullable: false,
    args: {
    resolve: async (_, args) => {
      const offset = args.offset || 0
      const limit = args.limit || 10
      const [totalCount, paginatedUsers] = await Promise.all([
        // Get the total count of users as an int
        // Get the list of users based on the limit and offset
          skip: offset,
          take: limit
      return {
        nodes: paginatedUsers,
        totalCount: totalCount[0].count,
