Hands-On Full-Stack with GraphQL and React: Build scalable full-stack applications while learning to solve complex problems with GraphQL

Unearth the power of GraphQL, React, Apollo, , and Express to build a scalable, production ready application

Key Features

  • Build full stack applications with modern APIs using GraphQL and Apollo
  • Integrate Apollo into React and build frontend components using GraphQL
  • Implement a self-updating notification pop-up with a unique GraphQL feature called Subscriptions

Book Description

React, one of the most widely used frameworks, allows developers to build fast and scalable front end applications for any use case. GraphQL is the modern way of querying an API. It represents an alternative to REST and is the next evolution in web development. Combining these two revolutionary technologies will give you a future-proof and scalable stack you can start building your business around.

This book will guide you in implementing applications by using React, Apollo, Node.js and SQL. We'll focus on solving complex problems with GraphQL, such as abstracting multi-table architectures and handling image uploads. Our client, and will be powered by Apollo. Finally we will go ahead and build a complete Graphbook. While building the app, we'll cover the tricky parts of connecting React to the back end, and maintaining and synchronizing state. We'll learn all about querying data and authenticating users. We'll write test cases to verify the front end and back end functionality for our application and cover deployment. By the end of the book, you will be proficient in using GraphQL and React for your full-stack development requirements.

What you will learn

  • Resolve data from multi-table database and system architectures
  • Build a GraphQL API by implementing and schemas with Apollo and Sequelize
