how it subscription work on the apollo server?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/graphql

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-sse

    Zero-dependency, HTTP/1 safe, simple, GraphQL over Server-Sent Events Protocol server and client.

    Actually WebSocket is not the only protocol for executing GraphQL subscriptions. There is also a graphql-over-sse protocol, which is much more lightweight, and uses Server Sent Events. A popular implementation of it is the graphql-sse library, which is maintained by the same person as graphql-ws. The setup and API of both libraries is pretty similar.

  • graphql-ws

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

  • 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-yoga

    🧘 Rewrite of a fully-featured GraphQL Server with focus on easy setup, performance & great developer experience. The core of Yoga implements W3C Fetch API and can run/deploy on any JS environment.

    Last, in case you just want a simple GraphQL server where you don’t have to setup anything and subscriptions work out of the box (using SSE), you might wanna check out GraphQL Yoga v2 (Disclaimer: I am maintaining this library).
