Load Config

This function is the starting point for using GraphQL Config. It looks for a config file in predefined search places in the current working directory.

A Basic Usage Example (async):

import { loadConfig } from 'graphql-config'
async function main() {
  const config = await loadConfig({ ... }) // an instance of GraphQLConfig

Synchronous Version:

import { loadConfigSync } from 'graphql-config'
function main() {
  const config = loadConfigSync({
    /* ... */
  }) // an instance of GraphQLConfig
