  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo TypeScript

    TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output.


  • GitHub repo graphql-js

    A reference implementation of GraphQL for JavaScript

    And on top of this, the beauty is that, with GraphQL and Typescript, we can actually make the end-end stack fully typed (which is what we do at Timecampus). And after seeing all this happening, even graphql-js is on its path to migration with Typescript.

  • GitHub repo graphql-helix

    A highly evolved GraphQL HTTP Server 🧬

    Graphql Helix

  • GitHub repo node-graphql-benchmarks

    Benchmarks for different Node.js GraphQL Servers

    And since there are no outside dependencies except for graphql-js there is also no bloat to the same unlike other graphql servers. If you want to see how other GraphQL servers perform, you might want to have a look at this.

  • GitHub repo prisma1

    💾 Database Tools incl. ORM, Migrations and Admin UI (Postgres, MySQL & MongoDB)

    The next thing which comes to mind is a VSCode extension which can provide the support for all the things you need to do with GraphQL. Originally developed by the amazing people at Prisma this extension was later donated to the GraphQL Foundation and the reason this extension is really promising is because, it provides everything you need to work with GraphQL including syntax highlighting, autocompletion, validation, SDL navigation, execute, operations, support for tagged template literals and all of this with support for GraphQL Config and it works great.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo graphql-code-generator

    A tool for generating code based on a GraphQL schema and GraphQL operations (query/mutation/subscription), with flexible support for custom plugins.

    GraphQL Codegen

  • GitHub repo Visual Studio Code

    Visual Studio Code
