Building Data-driven React 17 Applications with Relay, GraphQL, and Flux

by Samer Buna

Build a full-stack JavaScript web application from scratch using React with Flux/Relay on the frontend and Node/Express with GraphQL and MongoDB on the backend.

What you'll learn

In this course, we create a React.js application on top of an Express.js project on Node.js. We'll have our data stored in MongoDB and exposed with a GraphQL endpoint on the server. For the clients on the frontend, we'll see examples of how to work with data using the Flux pattern first, then using the Relay.js framework. We'll be using Babel and Webpack in this project, and we'll install all our dependencies with npm. The application we will be building is a list of educational resources about React, GraphQL, and Relay. Users can add new resources and browse and search the list.
