Install

npm

Add the addon to your configuration in .storybook/main.js

module.exports = {
  ...config,
  addons: [
    ...your addons
    "storybook-addon-apollo-client",
  ],
};

add the following to your .storybook/preview.js

import { MockedProvider } from '@apollo/client/testing'; // Use for Apollo Version 3+
// import { MockedProvider } from "@apollo/react-testing"; // Use for Apollo Version < 3

export const parameters = {
  apolloClient: {
    MockedProvider,
    // any props you want to pass to MockedProvider on every story
  },
};

Upgrading from a previous version

In previous versions, we had a decorator called withApolloClient this is no longer nesscessary. If you're upgrading from this API here are the following changes that you'll need to make:

  1. remove all code referencing the deprecated withApolloClient decorator.
  2. follow install instructions

Writing your stories with queries

import DashboardPage, { DashboardPageQuery } from '.';

export default {
  title: 'My Story',
};

export const Example = () => <DashboardPage />;

Example.parameters = {
  apolloClient: {
    // do not put MockedProvider here, you can, but its preferred to do it in preview.js
    mocks: [
      {
        request: {
          query: DashboardPageQuery,
        },
        result: {
          data: {
            viewer: null,
          },
        },
      },
    ],
  },
};
