ElixirConf US 2018 – Making a GraphQL Server with Absinthe & Dataloader – Aaron Votre (@shamshirz)
The GraphQL query language has been growing in popularity since it’s release by Facebook in 2015. It gives servers more flexibility than REST and Elixir already has an amazing library supporting the GraphQL Spec - Absinthe! If our API adapts, so should the way we access the database, that’s where Dataloader makes writing Ecto queries easy and less repetitive.
See how we can make a simple graphQL server with as little code as possible.
- It will be helpful to have a basic understanding of Phoenix, Ecto, and the objective of GraphQL.
