Data Fetching

Pull real data from an API with fetch or GraphQL.

Fetch

Full example

skpm automatically provides the Sketch fetch polyfill — just use fetch as usual.

import fetch from 'sketch-module-fetch-polyfill'
import { render } from 'react-sketchapp';
import MyApp from './MyApp';

export default (context) => {
  fetch('https://reqres.in/api/users')
  .then(res => res.json())
  .then(data => {
    render(<MyApp users={data.users} />, context.document.currentPage());
  });
}

GraphQL

Full example

gql-sketch provides a convenient interface for interacting with GraphQL APIs.

npm install gql-sketch --save
import Client from 'gql-sketch';
import { render } from 'react-sketchapp';
import MyApp from './MyApp';

export default (context) => {
  Client('http://example.com/my-graphql-endpoint').query(`
    {
      allFilms {
        films {
          title,
          actor,
          catchphrase
        }
      }
    }
  `).then(
    ({ allFilms }) => {
      render(<MyApp films={allFilms} />, context.document.currentPage());
    }
  );
}
