To set GraphQL variables in PHP, you can use the GraphQLClient library. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to set variables in a GraphQL query using PHP:

  1. First, install the GraphQLClient library via composer by running the following command in your terminal:
1
composer require braunson/graphql-client


  1. Next, create a new instance of the GraphQLClient class and specify the GraphQL endpoint URL:
1
2
3
use GraphQLClient;

$client = new Client('http://example.com/graphql');


  1. Define your GraphQL query and variables:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
$query = '
    query($id: Int!) {
        user(id: $id) {
            id
            name
        }
    }
';

$variables = ['id' => 123];


  1. Set the variables in the GraphQL query using the setVariables() method:
1
$client->setVariables($variables);


  1. Execute the GraphQL query with the variables:
1
$response = $client->run($query);


  1. Finally, you can access the response data as needed:
1
$data = $response->getData();


That's it! You have successfully set GraphQL variables in PHP using the GraphQLClient library.
