Source Handlers
Apache Thrift

Apache Thrift


This handler allows you to consume Apache Thrift .thrift files and generate a remote executable schema for those services.

To get started, install the handler library:

npm i @graphql-mesh/thrift

Now, you can use it directly in your Mesh config file:

  - name: Calculator
        idl: ./src/thrift/calculator.thrift
        hostName: localhost
        port: 8080
        path: /thrift
        serviceName: calculator-service

You can check out our example that uses Thrift Handler.
