Similarly there are two parts to this app:
- The API uses Node with the Express web framework, Apollo-Server as the GraphQL Server and GraphQL as the query language. It uses MongoDB and the Mongoose.js ORM as it's database. To use this app you need to connect your own MongoDB in the server.js file.
To install the API's dependencies run:
- The Client is built with React.js and is contained in the client folder. It was generated with create-react-app. It uses Apollo Client for interacting with the GraphQL API.
To install the client packages from the client directory run:
To run the app in your development environment run:
npm run dev
