Twitter has been using GraphQL in production since 2017 making it one of the early adopters and a source of many challenges and solutions and more than a few custom tools.

22 May 2022

A common security measure for GraphQL APIs is to block use of introspection in production.

22 May 2022

The client implementations for both Twitter and the New York Times use both Relay and GraphiQL.

Relay, also developed and used at Facebook, is something I need to learn more about. I would love to hear from others what resources they have used to learn about Relay.

21 May 2022

Why are FE devs are salty about union types in a GraphQL schema?

Anytime the schema devs add an arm to a union type it will cause a breaking change on the client, IF the client doesn’t account for unknown types in their query.

News to me:

The BFF (Backend for Frontends) architecture pattern was created at Soundcloud circa 2015 and is based upon the strangler pattern.

Recommended tools that aren’t custom like those at Twitter.

Apollo - defacto standard for working with GraphQL Mature ecosystem of tooling

GraphQLjs allowed us to build to the linter at Twitter

Twitter uses Relay on the client

Next you’ll want to add a helper function in your resolvers.

export enum QueryStatus {  
  success = 'SUCCESS',  
  notFound = 'NOT_FOUND',  
  error = 'ERROR',  
export const success = (node: Customer) => ({ status: QueryStatus.success, node });  
export const notFound = (message: string) => ({ status: QueryStatus.notFound, message });  
export const error = (message: string) => ({ status: QueryStatus.error, message });

What does the ! do?

Bang indicates a value that can’t return null. The field will return either a value or an error.

09 May 2022

I just received a question on why GraphQL always returns HTTP status 200.

The specification defines GraphQL at the application layer, but the status code reflects the status of a transport layer.

To return query statuses you need to add a type to the schema with a field for status.

type Customer {  
  id: Int!  
  name: String!  
type CustomerResult {  
  status: String!  
  message: String  
  node: Customer  
type Query {  
  customer(id: Int!): CustomerResult!

This is a test. Oddly enough it’s a test of integration as opposed to an integration test. heh

The first enterprise, not named Facebook, to build a GraphQL implementation was Airbnb.

The GraphQL specification doesn’t support file uploads.
