The Apollo Handbook
The Apollo Handbook
A guide for building a production-quality React and GraphQL application.
About the Book
This book is about how we can approach building a frontend application using a combination of React, Next.JS, TypeScript, GraphQL, Apollo, and GraphQL Code Generator. These tools are a winning combination for a frontend stack, and I'll be demonstrating how to use them within these pages.
