Installation ( Quick Start )

The quick start method provides a server and CLI to get going quickly. Install with:

Getting Started

Create a file called
with the following code:
import strawberry

@strawberry.type class User: name: str age: int

@strawberry.type class Query: @strawberry.field def user(self) -> User: return User(name="Patrick", age=100)

schema = strawberry.Schema(query=Query)

This will create a GraphQL schema defining a

type and a single query field
that will return a hardcoded user.

To run the debug server run the following command:

To support graphql Subscriptions over WebSockets you need to provide a WebSocket enabled server. The debug server can be made to support WebSockets with these commands:

pip install 'strawberry-graphql[debug-server]'
pip install 'uvicorn[standard]'



We use poetry to manage dependencies, to get started follow these steps:

git clone
cd strawberry
poetry install
poetry run pytest
