GraphQL is a powerful query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. It's an elegant approach that solves many problems typically found with REST APIs. For background, we suggest reading this comparison between GraphQL and REST. GraphQL combined with TypeScript helps you develop better type safety with your GraphQL queries, giving you end-to-end typing.


If you are using express HTTP engine, install the following packages:

$ npm i --save @nestjs/graphql apollo-server-express graphql

In case of fastify, you should install apollo-server-fastify instead.

$ npm i --save @nestjs/graphql apollo-server-fastify graphql
