Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • graphql-js

    A reference implementation of GraphQL for JavaScript

    During that work, we created and merged the reference implementation into graphql-js and created two supporting libraries: graphql-subscriptions and subscriptions-transport-ws. Here is a talk with deep dive into all the details.

  • react-relay

    Relay is a JavaScript framework for building data-driven React applications.

    Check the repo out to for Getting Started quickly with some Recepies for vanilla usage, or with Relay and Apollo Client. Opening issues, contributing with code or simply improving the documentation is always welcome!

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • graphql-subscriptions

    :newspaper: A small module that implements GraphQL subscriptions for Node.js

    During that work, we created and merged the reference implementation into graphql-js and created two supporting libraries: graphql-subscriptions and subscriptions-transport-ws. Here is a talk with deep dive into all the details.

  • subscriptions-transport-ws

    :arrows_clockwise: A WebSocket client + server for GraphQL subscriptions

    Okay, so, how do I use WebSockets to add support for the GraphQL subscription operation? Doing a basic Google search, you’d be faced with a single solution, namely subscriptions-transport-ws. Looking through the repository, checking recent comments, reading through the issues and open PRs - might have you notice the abundance of bugs and their security implications. A summary can be found here.

  • graphql-ws

    Coherent, zero-dependency, lazy, simple, GraphQL over WebSocket Protocol compliant server and client.

  • graphql-over-http

    Working draft of "GraphQL over HTTP" specification

    With no further ado - I humbly introduce graphql-ws. A coherent, feature-full, zero-dependency, plug-n-play, lazy, simple, server and client implementation of the new, security first GraphQL over WebSocket Protocol with full support for all 3 GraphQL operations: Queries, Mutations and Subscriptions. The protocol aims to be standardised and become a part of GraphQL with the help of the foundation’s GraphQL over HTTP work group.

  • ws

    Simple to use, blazing fast and thoroughly tested WebSocket client and server for Node.js

    With ws

  • 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.

  • uWebSockets.js

    μWebSockets for Node.js back-ends :metal:

    With uWebSockets.js

  • fastify-websocket

    basic websocket support for fastify

    With fastify-websocket
