This course teaches the basics of using GraphQL in a Rails application. GraphQL is a query language invented by Facebook in 2012, and made open source in 2015. While it has certain clear advantages over REST, it also has a somewhat steeper learning curve.

Structured in a simple and accessible manner, these lectures will help you get on your way to using GraphQL to circulate data between back-end and front-end applications.

In the first section we will learn about reading data; in the second, about changing data; and the slightly more advanced third section is about protecting data.

Who is the target audience?

  • Back-end developers in Ruby on Rails who are looking for a better way to talk to front-ends

Basic knowledge
  • You should have already created at least one Ruby on Rails application
  • You should have some familiarity with what API applications are

What will you learn
  • How to add GraphQL to a Rail app so that it can talk to any Front-End
  • Enable GraphQL in a Rail app
  • Use GraphiQL, a query simulator
  • Ask for data using GraphQL Queries
  • Change data using mutations
  • Protect data using authorisation
