Gatsby Apollo Netlify

Gatsby Starter Apollo Netlify

This project is an easy way to start developing fullstack apps with Gatsby and Apollo Server (using Netlify Lambda functions). For developing we use Netlify Dev to bring all of this magic to our local machine.

Requirements 🏁

Usage ⚙️

Create a new Gatsby project specifying this starter, navigate to it, and start Netlify Dev server:

# Use the Gatsby CLI to create a new project, specifying this starter.
gatsby new my-new-project https://github.com/piducancore/gatsby-starter-apollo-netlify

# Go to your new project’s directory.
cd my-new-project/

# Start your local Netlify Dev server
netlify dev

That's it. Your Netlify Dev server is running at http://localhost:8888!

Start by checking src/pages/index.js to see an example query using the Query component from react-apollo, and functions/graphql/graphql.js to start editing your Apollo Server.

You can find Apollo Server's GraphQL Playground at http://localhost:8888/.netlify/functions/graphql

Note: You'll also see a second link: http://localhost:8000. This is Gatsby's default dev server, and it won't have access to our Apollo Server (or any other serverless function) since Netlify Dev is doing all the proxying.

Deploy to Netlify 🚀

With the Netlify CLI you can create deployments directly from the command-line:

# Login with the Netlify CLI
netlify login

# Configure continuous deployment for a new or existing site
netlify init

# Create new deploy
netlify deploy
You can’t perform that action at this time.
