About quotes project
It can be hard to start with GraphQL and I struggled a lot with the first setup. I did several beginner mistakes and when I checked the internet I could find just some really basic examples. So I created an example project for everyone who wants to start with GraphQL.
The project itself is very easy. It is about IT quotes, so you have some
author and he / she can have one or more
quotes. The API then let a user ask for list of quotes or authors, filter and order them. Backend code is available in two languages: PHP and NodeJS.
Database has just two tables,
quote. You can init the database with a script that is part of the project, or run migrations.

Project contains also couple of integration tests to check if the whole applicaton is working. If someone opens a pull request it runs a GitHub action, creates a database, run migrations and seed test data. Then run queries and check if the result is correct.
