GraphQL-Express-App CLI — A New Way to Learn and Build GraphQL APIs

CLI tool that can be used by anyone to start their new GraphQL-Express project with a MongoDB database. It is a CLI (command line interface) to start a GraphQL-Express server with some pre-designed MongoDB model for handling database and a Schema to access the Database and carry out GraphQL queries and mutations.

Hey guys, if you are new to OSS(open source software) development and want to get started with open source contributions, then here is the organization for you where you can initiate your projects and contribute to previously started projects too!

Ping me on Twitter if you would like to start a Project in QuBytes-OSS!

I have been using GraphQL to learn and build some personal projects. And in the process, I needed some boilerplate to a new project.

It inspired me to start working on something that would fasten the process of starting a new project. Something that enables anyone to build a GraphQL-Express server with a MongoDB database with ease.

So, I built the graphql-express-app CLI tool that can be used by anyone to start their new GraphQL-Express project with a MongoDB database.

Features:

  1. Command Line Interface for faster project generation.
  2. Initialize Git from the CLI.
  3. Install dependencies from CLI.
  4. TypeScript Support (Coming Soon!)

What is graphql-express-app CLI?

It is a CLI (command line interface) to start a GraphQL-Express server with some pre-designed MongoDB model for handling database and a Schema to access the Database and carry out GraphQL queries and mutations.

What to expect from the CLI?

The CLI will lead you to create a simple GraphQL-Express app that you can further build according to your project needs.

What are the dependencies in the generated project?

This CLI is built to initialize a GraphQL-Express server. It uses the following dependencies for starting a new project.

  • graphql: To build a GraphQL schema and design GraphQL types and use them for creating queries and mutations.
  • express: It is an npm module used to build routes in back-end applications and create middleware functions.
  • express-graphql: it helps us create a GraphQL HTTP server in the Express routes as a middleware function.
  • graphql-type-long: GraphQL doesn’t have a predefined long-integer type. This npm module helps bridge that gap.
  • dotenv: used to store MongoDB URI.
  • mongoose: used to connect to the MongoDB database and carry out CRUD functions.

How to Build Apollo GraphQL Server From Scratch

GraphQL is a query language and a server-side runtime that is used to request data from the server. The first thing that comes to mind when hearing the term “query language” is SQL. Just as SQL is used for querying databases, GraphQL is a bit like SQL but for querying web APIs as it eliminates the need to repeatedly develop or change existing end-points. GraphQL also enables the client/front-end to retrieve exactly the data they have requested and no more. This means that, within a single request of GraphQL, you can traverse from the entry point to the related data (whereas in RESTful API you have to call multiple endpoints to fetch similar results).
