Yes, there is the Absinthe book that deal with this.


yeah … but seems “the Paper Book will ship on 2018-02-10 (roughly).” ?

The book is co-written by author of the tuts… together they wrote absinthe. It’s hard to have a more advised opinion. And it covers exactly what You are looking for.

I could not wait for the paper version and took the e-book.

Before this, I had to read absinthe official doc, and the code…

Filtering, Pagination is just a matter of query, but for advanced topics, such as Authentication, Error Handling, Subscriptions I was happy to find all mentioned inside it.

Notably we cover some examples of filtering already in the beta content, and the next chapter that’s coming out will have examples of pagination patterns.


I should also add that we’d very much like to fill out that website more, it’s just been hard to allocate the time at the moment. Hopefully we’ll be able to put some time at it in the new year.


I have a production-beta version of an app that uses Absinthe, React and Apollo here:

I have some examples of how to do filtering (channel messages only for a given day), and pagination. I don’t have a usecase for subscriptions yet. Maybe later.

Perhaps this might be useful to you.
