GraphQL has been getting popular recently and is likely to replace the Rest API. In this tutorial, we will use Apollo Client to communicate with GitHub’s GraphQL API. We will integrate Apollo Client with ReactJS, but you can use it with several other client platforms as well.
In these tutorials, I’ll show you how to create and interact with a GraphQL database using AWS AppSync and React Native. This app will have real-time & offline functionality, something we get out of the box with AppSync. In this post we’ll get started by setting up the back-end with AppSync.
GraphQL is designed to work with data represented by a graph, and it has a powerful query syntax for traversing, retrieving, and mutating data. Learn how to use it in our new course, Build APIs With GraphQL.
