[ALPHA][NODE.JS] BUG: Gutted / Useless Request Object in Context Factory

See original GitHub issue

When creating a server like so (with express):

const yoga = createServer({
  context: req => {
    user: req.user,
    session: req.session,
    loaders: req.user ? makeLoaders(req.user) : null
  maskedErrors: production ? true : false

app.use('/graphql', express.json(), yoga.requestListener);

The req object given has no useful available information. Despite populating the express Request object with additional data in middleware, none of it exists – in addition, it’s impossible to grab the headers/query/body properties for some reason.

This is on latest 2.0.0-alpha-13f075f.0 and 2.0.1-canary-ac3f3a9.0.

@ardatan is v2 = graphql-yoga@alpha ? If so, then it is the same problem I faced with alpha, but, this old version graphql-yoga fixed the issue.

It is Request object created by cross-undici-fetch. It has the API of request.headers.get('content-type') would return application/json for example. You are right about the docs 😃 We’re working on it.

We are not planning to put environment’s request object(NodeJS in this case) but export a helper function to get it;

But if request isn’t still exposed in context factory function, this seems a bug we need to solve. Would you create a PR with a failing test that shows nothing is exposed in context factory fn.
