Run locally

Get the code:

git clone git@github.com:GraphQLGuide/all-the-databases.git
cd all-the-databases
npm install

brew install elasticsearch
brew install mongodb

Run one command per terminal tab:

GraphiQL screenshot

When you paste this on the left side of the GraphiQL page:

{
  user(id: 1) {
    firstName
    lastName
    photo
    mentions {
      ...TweetDetails
    }
  }      
  publicFeed {
    ...TweetDetails
  }
  cityFeed {
    ...TweetDetails
  }
}

fragment TweetDetails on Tweet {
  text
  author {
    firstName
    lastName
    photo
  }      
  city
  views
  created
}

and hit the play button (or cmd-return), then you should get something like this on the right:
