Integration with Express#

Express is the most popular web framework for Node.js. It is a minimalist framework that provides a robust set of features to handle HTTP on Node.js applications. You can easily integrate GraphQL Yoga into your Express application with a few lines of code.


yarn add express yarn add graphql yarn add @graphql-yoga/node


import express from 'express' import { createServer } from '@graphql-yoga/node' const app = express() const graphQLServer = createServer() // Bind GraphQL Yoga to `/graphql` endpoint app.use('/graphql', graphQLServer) app.listen(4000, () => { console.log('Running a GraphQL API server at http://localhost:4000/graphql') })
