Solid Query

The @tanstack/solid-query package provides a 1st-class API for using TanStack Query with SolidJS.

Example

tsx
import { QueryClient, QueryClientProvider, createQuery } from '@tanstack/solid-query'
import { Switch, Match, For } from 'solid-js'
const queryClient = new QueryClient()
function Example() {
const query = createQuery(() => ['todos'], fetchTodos)
return (
<div>
<Switch>
<Match when={query.isLoading}>
<p>Loading...</p>
</Match>
<Match when={query.isError}>
<p>Error: {query.error.message}</p>
</Match>
<Match when={query.isSuccess}>
<For each={query.data}>
{(todo) => <p>{todo.title}</p>}
</For>
</Match>
</Switch>
</div>
)
}
function App() {
return (
<QueryClientProvider client={queryClient}>
<Example />
</QueryClientProvider>
)
}

Available Functions

Solid Query offers useful primitives and functions that will make managing server state in SolidJS apps easier.

  • createQuery
  • createQueries
  • createInfiniteQueries
  • createMutation
  • useIsFetching
  • useIsMutating
  • useQueryClient
  • QueryClient
  • QueryClientProvider

Important Differences between Solid Query & React Query

Solid Query offers an API similar to React Query, but there are some key differences to be mindful of.

  • To maintain their reactivity, Query keys need to be wrapped inside a function while using createQuery, createQueries, createInfiniteQuery and useIsFetching.
tsx
// ❌ react version
useQuery(["todos", todo], fetchTodos)
// ✅ solid version
createQuery(() => ["todos", todo()], fetchTodos)
  • Suspense works for queries out of the box if you access the query data inside a <Suspense> boundary.
tsx
import { For, Suspense } from 'solid-js'
function Example() {
const query = createQuery(() => ['todos'], fetchTodos)
return (
<div>
{/* ✅ Will trigger loading fallback, data accessed in a suspense context. */}
<Suspense fallback={"Loading..."}>
<For each={query.data}>{(todo) => <div>{todo.title}</div>}</For>
</Suspense>
{/* ❌ Will not trigger loading fallback, data not accessed in a suspense context. */}
<For each={query.data}>{(todo) => <div>{todo.title}</div>}</For>
</div>
)
}
  • Solid Query primitives (createX) do not support destructuring. The return value from these functions is a store, and their properties are only tracked in a reactive context.
tsx
import { QueryClient, QueryClientProvider, createQuery } from '@tanstack/solid-query'
import { Match, Switch } from 'solid-js'
const queryClient = new QueryClient()
export default function App() {
return (
<QueryClientProvider client={queryClient}>
<Example />
</QueryClientProvider>
)
}
function Example() {
// ❌ react version -- supports destructing outside reactive context
// const { isLoading, error, data } = useQuery(['repoData'], () =>
// fetch('https://api.github.com/repos/tannerlinsley/react-query').then(res =>
// res.json()
// )
// )
// ✅ solid version -- does not support destructuring outside reactive context
const query = createQuery(
() => ['repoData'],
() =>
fetch('https://api.github.com/repos/tannerlinsley/react-query').then(
(res) => res.json(),
),
)
// ✅ access query properties in JSX reactive context
return (
<Switch>
<Match when={query.isLoading}>Loading...</Match>
<Match when={query.isError}>Error: {query.error.message}</Match>
<Match when={query.isSuccess}>
<div>
<h1>{query.data.name}</h1>
<p>{query.data.description}</p>
<strong>👀 {query.data.subscribers_count}</strong>{' '}
<strong>{query.data.stargazers_count}</strong>{' '}
<strong>🍴 {query.data.forks_count}</strong>
</div>
</Match>
</Switch>
)
}
  • If you want options to be reactive you need to pass them using object getter syntax. This may look strange at first but it leads to more idiomatic solid code.
tsx
import {
QueryClient,
QueryClientProvider,
createQuery,
} from '@tanstack/solid-query'
import { createSignal, For } from 'solid-js'
const queryClient = new QueryClient()
function Example() {
const [enabled, setEnabled] = createSignal(false)
const query = createQuery(() => ['todos'], fetchTodos, {
// ❌ passing a signal directly is not reactive
// enabled: enabled(),
// ✅ passing a function that returns a signal is reactive
get enabled() {
return enabled()
},
})
return (
<div>
<Switch>
<Match when={query.isLoading}>
<p>Loading...</p>
</Match>
<Match when={query.isError}>
<p>Error: {query.error.message}</p>
</Match>
<Match when={query.isSuccess}>
<For each={query.data}>
{(todo) => <p>{todo.title}</p>}
</For>
</Match>
</Switch>
<button onClick={() => setEnabled(!enabled())}>Toggle enabled</button>
</div>
)
}
function App() {
return (
<QueryClientProvider client={queryClient}>
<Example />
</QueryClientProvider>
)
}
  • Errors can be caught and reset using SolidJS' native ErrorBoundary component. QueryErrorResetBoundary is not needed with Solid Query

  • Since Property tracking is handled through Solid's fine grained reactivity, options like notifyOnChangeProps are not needed
