React on Rails & GraphQL Ruby Example Project

In Progress...

Link Bender App Link Bender Animation Example

This is a very simple GraphQL Ruby / React on Rails example app that leverages the back end rails API laid out in the How To GraphQL – GraphQL Ruby tutorial written by Radoslav Stankov. This project extends that tutorial by implementing a React on Rails front end with Apollo Client to hit the rails server and Apollo Link-State to manage local application state. It's mostly a Front End exercise, but I added several Ruby GraphQL queries, types, and mutations to get a feel for things.
