Primer is a query language built to transform Covalent API responses at query time. Primer queries are listed in order of precedence. Eg: If primer={ ... } and match={ ... } are used, primer is executed first. All top-level queries including the primer pipeline are executed on the set of records returned after pagination. In other words, if you want these queries to include all records, you must set the page-number=0 and the page-size=... to an amount that includes all records.

The guides below serve as a knowledge resource to give you an indepth understanding of Primer.
