What is Apollo Server and what does it do?
Apollo Server is the best way to quickly build a production-ready, self-documenting API for GraphQL clients, using data from any source.
It's open-source and works great as a stand-alone server, an addon to an existing Node.js HTTP server, or in "serverless" environments.
Apollo Server implements a spec-compliant GraphQL server which can be queried from any GraphQL client, including Apollo Client, enabling:
- An easy start, so front-end and back-end developers can start fetching data quickly.
- Incremental adoption, allowing advanced features to be added when they're needed.
- Universal compatibility with any data source, any build tool and any GraphQL client.
- Production readiness, and what you build in development works great in production.
