GraphQL + React, Apollo, GraphCool

I completed the tutorial How to GraphQL, it’s a great tutorial to understand GraphQL. You get to build a Hackernews clone with React, Apollo (caching GraphQL client), GraphQL and GraphCool (GraphQL backend). Choose a different stack if you’d like, there’s options in the tutorial.

This is the Hackernews app I built using the tutorial. I’m so glad that GraphQL exists, you don’t need ten different HTTP endpoints for every data retrieval or manipulation, just one does the job. I can’t believe I haven’t been using this, I’m so happy with it.

A simple illustration from the tutorial ( that demonstrates how it’s simpler (and better) than REST API..
