To create a dynamic GraphQL query using variables in PHP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the GraphQL client library for PHP. You can use libraries like webonyx/graphql-php, youshido/graphql, or any other library of your choice. For this example, we'll use webonyx/graphql-php. Install with composer: composer require webonyx/graphql-php
  2. Initialize the GraphQL client by importing the necessary classes from the library and creating an instance of the GraphQLClient class. use GraphQLClient; use GraphQLQueryBuilder; $endpointUrl = 'http://your-graphql-endpoint'; $client = new Client($endpointUrl);
  3. Define the GraphQL query with variables using QueryBuilder. $queryBuilder = new QueryBuilder(); $queryBuilder ->query(' query ($variableName: Type) { getSomeData(input: $variableName) { field1 field2 } } ') ->variables([ 'variableName' => 'some value', ]); $query = $queryBuilder->getQuery(); Replace 'Type' with the actual GraphQL type of your variable, and 'some value' with the value you want to assign to the variable.
  4. Execute the GraphQL query using the client. try { $response = $client->runQuery($query); $data = $response->getData(); // Do something with the response data } catch (Exception $e) { // Handle exception/error } The response will contain the data returned by the GraphQL server. You can then process and use the data as needed.


Make sure to replace 'http://your-graphql-endpoint' with the actual URL of your GraphQL endpoint.
