GraphQL & Rails
About the Book
Learn how to build a GraphQL API on top of a Rails application with this step-by-step guide.
GraphQL is seen as a successor to REST APIs. GraphQL allows you to define a strictly typed API and to query for only the information you want, with none of the stuff you don't. This book will also show you how to make those types defined in your backend API flow through to your frontend code, defining clear types in TypeScript.
This book covers:
* GraphQL queries
* Working with Rails associations in GraphQL
* Pagination through GraphQL connection types
* Union types
* Authentication & Authorization
Gradually build up a fully-featured GraphQL API with RSpec tests in this step-by-step guide.
