Best advice on Slack for passing down full url with GraphQL?

4 replies
Last updated: Jan 6, 2021

I did some searching of Slack and didn't find what I was looking for. Is it possible to generate an entire URL from the url schema? Say I want a user to put in their Twitter handle, is it possible to pass down the entire https://twitter.com/TheirHandle from Sanity or does it make more sense to do the concatenation in Gatsby and just pass the handle? Cheers.

Hey

user F
- you can do that in the GROQ query, concatenating strings works pretty much like in JS:
*[_type=="doc"] {
  "twitterUrl": "<https://twitter.com>" + handleField
}

Thanks for the reply

. I really appreciate your time. Groq is new to me. I am using node to query Sanity via graphql. I am trying to see how GROQ fits into that flow.

Speaking from experience, I would bet that once you really get in to GROQ, youll ditch graphql completely (at least on Sanity projects) 🙂 It’s really powerful and I feel like it provides a more “natural” way of writing queries, making it easy to learn.

Thanks for the advice. I will look more into it.
