Introduction

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:

  1. An easy start, so front-end and back-end developers can start fetching data quickly.
  2. Incremental adoption, allowing advanced features to be added when they’re needed.
  3. Universal compatibility with any data source, any build tool and any GraphQL client.
  4. Production readiness, and what you build in development works great in production.

These docs will help you go from getting started with Apollo to becoming an expert in no time!
