Slicknode GraphQL Tutorial


This is a step by step tutorial to guide you through the process of building a production-ready GraphQL API for a real world application using Slicknode. Afterwards you will have a thorough understanding of how to build complex applications while using all the major concepts like authorization, authentication, data modeling and creating your own extensions with TypeScript etc.

Required Knowledge

A design goal of Slicknode is to reduce the amount of knowledge that is required to build things, therefore it is very easy even for beginners to build complex solutions and a lot of things are self explanatory. You should have a basic familiarity with the following:

  • A very basic understanding of GraphQL. If you don't know GraphQL yet, briefly check out the official documentation.
  • You should be comfortable using the command line.

Advanced developers can skip the sections with the detailed explanations and just follow the instructions.
