GraphQL Server Boilerplates for TypeScript

Bootstrap your GraphQL server within seconds
GraphQL boilerplates provide the perfect foundation for your GraphQL server, no matter if you're just getting started with GraphQL or aim to build a fully-fledged application.


  • Rapid scaffolding: Simply use graphql create (from the GraphQL CLI) to download the boilerplate you want.
  • Easily extensible: A boilerplate only provides the minimum setup so you can tailor the API to your use case.
  • Best practices: Each boilerplate incorporates best practices from the GraphQL community.

Read more about the idea behind GraphQL boilerplates here.


Select a boilerplate and follow the instructions in the belonging README to get started:

  • minimal (coming soon): Minimal boilerplate with basic "Hello World" functionality
  • basic: Basic boilerplate based on a simple data model and with a GraphQL database
  • advanced: Advanced boilerplate with a GraphQL database, authentication and realtime subscriptions

All projects are based on graphql-yoga, a fully-featured GraphQL server library with focus on easy setup, performance & great developer experience.


The GraphQL boilerplates are maintained by the GraphQL community, with official support from the Apollo & Graphcool teams.
