Learn GraphQL with a hands-on approach. With this open source book you will build a full stack GraphQL application step by step using NodeJS, Apollo GraphQL and React.
You will build from scratch a Pinterest clone called PinApp. Every chapter will slowly teach you the different moving parts of a GraphQL stack by adding features to the example project.
Focus on learning, not on environment setup. Every chapter contains live, editable code samples.
The first chapter will teach you how to read and write data from PinApp, like fetching users or pins, using the GraphQL query language.
The second chapter will teach you how to design PinApp's data model using the GraphQL schema design language.
In the third chapter you will learn how to create PinApp's GraphQL APIs using Apollo Server. You will expose to HTTP the schema you designed in the previous chapter. You will also learn how to connect an API with a Postgres database, and how to organize the API source code.
In the fifth chapter you will learn how to add real time features to PinApp using GraphQL Subscriptions.
The sixth chapter will teach you how to test PinApp's API and frontend using Jest.
