  • Simple example with NestJS and Mercurius 😻
    3 projects | | 25 Jan 2023
    In this post I will show you how to implement NestJS😻 with GraphQL in code first mode, using Mercurius and the "platform" to Fastify.
  • Barrel Exports considered harmful

    What this does is to overwrite or augment the types exposed by the pointed module, and can be used (for example) when relying on autogenerated code. One interesting case of this is GraphQL to TypeScript code generation, and how this is integrated with the amazing Mercurius library (made by some of my colleagues at NearForm! 😜).
  • Apollo Server v4 Breaking Changes. Time to move away?
    4 projects | | 3 Dec 2022
    When moving away from Apollo Server, and you're looking for a replacement built with JavaScript or TypeScript, let me give you some options. If you want to keep building your GraphQL API schema first, you might want to consider Mercurius (which relies on Fastify) or GraphQL Yoga. If you're going to build your GraphQL API code or resolver first, have a look at TypeGraphQL or Nexus. Alternatively, there are great GraphQL-as-a-Service solutions such as StepZen in case you no longer want to build, maintain and host your own GraphQL API.
  • Fastify DX and SolidJS in the Real World
    12 projects | | 20 Jul 2022
    Let's start with data. We live in amazing times and it's really easy and cheap (or free) to get started with storing and working with data online. Take for example a PlanetScale MySQL-compatible database, Fastify Node.js Server, Prisma database mapper and a GraphQL connector like Mercurius and you have an entire backend stack. For this example we assume you already have a backend or you want to connect to a 3rd party database like the GitHub GraphQL API.
  • Nest JS With Graphql World
    9 projects | | 16 Mar 2022
    In this chapter, we assume a basic understanding of GraphQL and focus on how to work with the built-in @nestjs/graphql module. The GraphQLModule can be configured to use Apollo server (with the @nestjs/apollo driver) and Mercurius (with the @nestjs/mercurius). We provide official integrations for these proven GraphQL packages to provide a simple way to use GraphQL with Nest. You can also build your own dedicated driver (read more on that here).
  • Shill me on Apollo client.
    2 projects | | 25 Jan 2022
    Why would I want to use Apollo Client? So far in my career I have used some server graphql scaffolding (webonyx/graphql-php for PHP and mercurius for Node) and just used the fetch API (or whatever ajax API around XMLHttpRequest) against that server with the body being an object with
  • Are there actually better alternatives than Apollo server?
    7 projects | | 16 Jan 2022 Is easily the best node graphql server imo
    7 projects | | 16 Jan 2022
    Only for people who are clueless. Apollo server is probably the worst node.js server to use for your graphql schema. It's terribly slow. You should look into
