    Project mention: A good way to start exploring APIs (for beginners) | | 2021-10-19

    I like this unofficial SpaceX API. I am using it in examples for API-related tutorials and to train less experience technical personnel. Works like a charm so far :)

    Project mention: How do you upload a file to Apollo server? | | 2021-10-02
  • GitHub repo session

    Simple session middleware for koa (by koajs)

    Project mention: JWT should not be your default for sessions | | 2021-05-10

    Frameworks usually sign cookies by default, or at least offer an option to do so. Some (like Ruby on Rails) can encrypt them for you too. There's nothing really stopping you from storing data in them just like you would a JWT. In fact, frameworks and session libraries often use this cookie storage by default (even in the Node ecosystem, e.g: koa-session, express cookie-session), since an in-memory store can grow to an arbitrary size. Of course, you can also just store a JWT in a cookie, which has the advantage of being standardized in terms of claims and signing algorithms etc.

  • GitHub repo koa-views

    Template rendering middleware for koa (hbs, swig, pug, anything! :sparkles:)

  • GitHub repo koa-hbs

    Handlebars templates for Koa.js

    isomorphic, "magical" authorization integration with Objection.js 🎉

    Project mention: Casbin: An authorization library that supports access control models like ACL, RBAC, ABAC in Node.js | | 2021-01-12

    Currently, I have managed to integrate casl into the objection ORM (see: plugin), but it’s kinda hard to wrap my head around casbin due to:

  • GitHub repo puresql

    ES6/7 ready SQL library for node.js inspired by Clojure's yesql

    Project mention: Puresql – A yesql inspired Node SQL library | | 2021-04-05
  • GitHub repo aws-serverless-koa

    This library enables you to utilize AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway to respond to web and API requests using the Koa.js application framework

    Project mention: Apollo GraphQL confusion - Koa OR Lambda?? | | 2021-04-08

    Koa has a Lambda handler package (, and so you should be able to serve anything that plugs into Koa as a middleware (i.e. apollo-server-koa) through your function handler instead. As for your other question about reasonability, I don't have much to offer without knowing your reasoning behind the stack in the first place as opposed to other potential managed database-GraphQL-combo options like Dgraph (Slash GraphQL) or Hasura Cloud or FaunaDB. If the resolver logic you need can't be handled by one of those services, I might wonder whether a Lambda GraphQL endpoint is the best fit in the first place, but your context could render that concern moot.
