A brief tutorial how to create a Node, TypeScript and GraphQL server from scratch with MySQL database. The ouput is a very basic GraphQL server, which you can run, send a simple query to it and get a response. The whole project is available on GitHub.
I needed to create a simple server, that would have one “public” route
/login and other routes are available only for users with valid JWT token.
That means, the user is allowed to log into the system and then get any data from it. If he is not logged in and he tries to get some data, he only get an error message and 401 ( Unauthorized ) status code will be returned.
