Apollo Studio

Apollo Studio (formerly Graph Manager) is a cloud app that provides a single, consolidated place for you to collaborate on the evolution of your graph.

It provides the following features to all Apollo users for free:

  • A query window that connects to all your environments and provides ergonomic ways to author and manage queries.
  • A GraphQL schema registry that tracks the evolution of your graph across your environments.
  • Key insights into which parts of your schema are being actively used, and by whom.
  • Team collaboration via organizations

Advanced features are available with a subscription to an Apollo Team or Enterprise plan.

Apollo Client Devtools

The Apollo Client Devtools are available as an extension for Chrome and Firefox.

Features

The Apollo Client Devtools appear as an "Apollo" tab in your web browser's Inspector panel, alongside default tabs like "Console" and "Network". The devtools currently have four main features:

  • GraphiQL: Send queries to your server through your web application's configured Apollo Client instance, or query the Apollo Client cache to see what data is loaded.
  • Watched query inspector: View active queries, variables, and cached results, and re-run individual queries.
  • Mutation inspector: View active mutations and their variables, and re-run individual mutations.
  • Cache inspector: Visualize the Apollo Client cache and search it by field name and/or value.

Installation

You can install the extension via the webstores for Chrome and Firefox.

Configuration

To enable the devtools in your app in production, pass connectToDevTools: true to the ApolloClient constructor in your app. Pass connectToDevTools: false if want to manually disable this functionality.
