I was starting thinking about Firebase + graphQL and this article definitely kick-started my effort; something about not starting with a blank page to move you along.

I only had two issues out of the box.


server.js: Line 3

import { graphqlExpress, graphiqlExpress } from “graphql-server-express”

I assume you mean “apollo-server-express”; worked when I fixed this.


You must be transpiling your code (from an earlier article). I had to switch to using require to deploy to firebase.

After I digest this a bit more (I am new to graphQL), I hope to write a more complete example that backs the data in Firebase itself.

Thanks for the article
