A trait marking a type that could be used as internal representation of scalar values in juniper

The main objective of this abstraction is to allow other libraries to replace the default representation with something that better fits thei needs. There is a custom derive (#[derive(ScalarValue)]) available that implements most of the required traits automatically for a enum representing a scalar value. This derives needs a additional annotation of the form #[juniper(visitor = "VisitorType")] to specify a type that implements serde::de::Visitor and that is used to deserialize the value.

Implementing a new scalar value representation

The preferred way to define a new scalar value representation is defining a enum containing a variant for each type that needs to be represented at the lowest level. The following example introduces an new variant that is able to store 64 bit integers.

#[derive(Debug, Clone, PartialEq, ScalarValue)]
enum MyScalarValue {
    Int(i32),
    Long(i64),
    Float(f64),
    String(String),
    Boolean(bool),
}

impl ScalarValue for MyScalarValue {
    type Visitor = MyScalarValueVisitor;

     fn as_int(&self) -> Option<i32> {
       match *self {
           MyScalarValue::Int(ref i) => Some(*i),
           _ => None,
       }
   }

   fn as_string(&self) -> Option<String> {
       match *self {
           MyScalarValue::String(ref s) => Some(s.clone()),
           _ => None,
       }
   }

   fn as_float(&self) -> Option<f64> {
       match *self {
           MyScalarValue::Int(ref i) => Some(*i as f64),
           MyScalarValue::Float(ref f) => Some(*f),
           _ => None,
       }
   }

   fn as_boolean(&self) -> Option<bool> {
       match *self {
           MyScalarValue::Boolean(ref b) => Some(*b),
           _ => None,
       }
   }
}

impl<'de> de::Visitor<'de> for MyScalarValueVisitor {
    type Value = MyScalarValue;

        formatter.write_str("a valid input value")
    }

    fn visit_bool<E>(self, value: bool) -> Result<MyScalarValue, E> {
        Ok(MyScalarValue::Boolean(value))
    }

    fn visit_i32<E>(self, value: i32) -> Result<MyScalarValue, E>
    where
        E: de::Error,

            self.visit_i32(value as i32)
        } else {
            Ok(MyScalarValue::Long(value))
        }
    }

    fn visit_u32<E>(self, value: u32) -> Result<MyScalarValue, E>
    where
        E: de::Error,
    {
        if value <= i32::max_value() as u32 {
            self.visit_i32(value as i32)
        } else {
            self.visit_u64(value as u64)
        }

        } else {
            // Browser's JSON.stringify serialize all numbers having no
            // fractional part as integers (no decimal point), so we
            // must parse large integers as floating point otherwise
            // we would error on transferring large floating point
            // numbers.
            Ok(MyScalarValue::Float(value as f64))
        }
    }

    fn visit_f64<E>(self, value: f64) -> Result<MyScalarValue, E> {
        Ok(MyScalarValue::Float(value))
    }

    fn visit_str<E>(self, value: &str) -> Result<MyScalarValue, E>
    where
        E: de::Error,
    {
        self.visit_string(value.into())

Convert the given scalar value into a string value

This function is used for implementing GraphQLType for String for all scalar values

Convert the given scalar value into a float value

This function is used for implementing GraphQLType for f64 for all scalar values. Implementations should convert all supported integer types with 64 bit or less and all floating point values with 64 bit or less to a float if requested.

Convert the given scalar value into a boolean value

This function is used for implementing GraphQLType for bool for all scalar values.
