This is the Restify integration of Apollo Server. Apollo Server is a community-maintained open-source Apollo Server that works with all Node.js HTTP server frameworks: Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa and Restify. Read the docs.

npm install apollo-server-restify


import restify from 'restify';
import { graphqlRestify, graphiqlRestify } from 'apollo-server-restify';

const PORT = 3000;

const server = restify.createServer({
  title: 'Apollo Server',

const graphQLOptions = { schema: myGraphQLSchema };


server.post('/graphql', graphqlRestify(graphQLOptions));
server.get('/graphql', graphqlRestify(graphQLOptions));

server.get('/graphiql', graphiqlRestify({ endpointURL: '/graphql' }));

server.listen(PORT, () => console.log(`Listening on ${PORT}`));

  • Simplicity: by keeping things simple, Apollo Server is easier to use, easier to contribute to, and more secure
  • Performance: Apollo Server is well-tested and production-ready - no modifications needed
