Replit isn’t the only site using GraphQL, I think we need to stop giving that impression XD
Maybe have them learn GraphQL first, before applying it to Replit?


to follow, these are my fav resources:

How can i use the replit api.

ok, I going to learn it

After you’ve learned a bit about how gql works:
You need to send a POST request to, and the body needs to be a JSON object with the query and/or variables. Special headers are also required. For authenticated requests, you’ll need your SID cookie. You can learn how to get that here. Here’s a Node.js example, using fetch, to get some information about a user from their username

const fetch = require('@replit/node-fetch');

fetch('', {
  method: 'POST',
  body: JSON.stringify({
    query: 'query UserByUsername($username: String!) {userByUsername(username: $username) {id username bio timeCreated}}',
    variables: {
      username: 'PikachuB2005'
  headers: {
    'X-Requested-With': 'replit',
    'Referrer': '',
		'User-Agent': 'Mozilla/5.0',
		'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Cookie': 'connect.sid=YourSIDCookieHere'
}).then((res) => res.json().then((json) => {

The @replit/node-fetch dependency isn’t needed in nodejs 18 (or 16 if you provide the right flag), because fetch is now part of Node’s standard library

I’ve never really bothered to learn about this stuff, one question I have is; does your SID ever change or reset? If not, do you automate collecting their SID somehow for projects requiring Replit GraphQL.

I think it changes when you log out and back in.


Yeah, that’s what I thought… So then how would you create automated things if the SID becomes invalid? Oh… Wait, would you use a scraping tool like Selenium?


I pretty much never log out and back in so…

True, me neither… But I might like log in on a different device or something


In which case I do believe you are just issued another SID, as I do believe SIDs are intended to be per-device.

You can just make a login request to Replit with yur username/password/captcha to get another SID. Ray’s login package
