The backend app in our Unpacked: Full-Stack GraphQL course is now complete. Yeehaw! 🤠
This week we begin unpacking the React app with Apollo Client on the frontend with 3 new videos for you!
To get our bearings and start on solid footing, we first explore how the React app is structured and organized with components and routing.
So how do React components get data from the GraphQL API? Well, they don’t interact with the API directly. Instead, the Apollo Client JS library acts as a very capable intermediary.
Then, with an Apollo Client instance linked to the GraphQL API, we learn how to use Apollo React’s Query component to fetch data from the API and render the results on the Home page.
