  • Ricks Associated with their Morties is the NextJS running on CloudFront by way of Amplify and relying on a GraphQL Apollo "server" running on a lambda @ the Edge, both in a monorepo that at some point used bun and then switched back to yarn:

  • rick-and-morty-api

    The Rick and Morty API

  • This project was conceived as a coding challenge and a demonstration of integrating modern web technologies into a cohesive application. The core of this project involves leveraging GraphQL to interact with the open-source Rick and Morty API, a task I often set for potential hires.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • bun

    Incredibly fast JavaScript runtime, bundler, test runner, and package manager – all in one

  • Despite these advantages, practical challenges, such as the GraphQL integration issue, led me back to Yarn, emphasizing the need for stability in web development.
