Production App

This example includes a relatively fully featured app to demonstrate how real-world applications can be built with Grats.


  • Node interface
  • dataloader
  • Connections (as used by Relay)
  • Subscriptions - See Subscription.postLikes in models/LikeConnection.ts
  • @stream - For expensive lists like Viewer.feed in models/Viewer.ts
  • Custom scalars - See Date defined in graphql/CustomScalars.ts

Implementation notes

Dataloaders are attached to the per-request viewer context. This enables per-request caching while avoiding the risk of leaking data between requests/users.

The viewer context is passed all the way through the app to the data layer. This would enable permission checking to be defined as close to the data as possible.
