A GraphQL API wrapper for The Movie DB built with Apollo Data Sources.

πŸ› οΈ Setup

Install dependencies by running yarn, then create a new file in the root directory named .env. You'll need to get an API key from The Movie DB in order to run any queries. For more information, please read the Movie DB docs. Additionally, if you want to track usage metrics for your API, you'll need to get an API key from Apollo Graph Manager. For instructions on how to do that, please read the Apollo Graph Manager docs. In your new .env file, copy + paste the following and replace the text following the = sign with your newly create API keys.

MOVIE_DB_API_V3_KEY=<insert your movie database v3 api key here>
# OR
MOVIE_DB_API_V4_KEY=<insert your movie database v4 api key here>

APOLLO_KEY=<insert your apollo studio api key here>

Once that's done, you can now start up a development server using yarn start. Once the development server is listening, you can pull up a GraphQL Playground by visiting one of the following URL:

Netlify: http://localhost:1337/.netlify/functions/tmdb-api

πŸ•ΉοΈ Demo

You can try out the API using the GraphQL Playground hosted at
