Integration with Express

Express is the most popular web framework for Node.js. It is a minimalist framework that provides a robust set of features to handle HTTP on Node.js applications. You can easily integrate GraphQL Yoga into your Express application with a few lines of code.


yarn add @graphql-yoga/node express graphql


import express from 'express'
import { createServer } from '@graphql-yoga/node'
const app = express()
const graphQLServer = createServer()
// Bind GraphQL Yoga to `/graphql` endpoint
app.use('/graphql', graphQLServer)
app.listen(4000, () => {
  console.log('Running a GraphQL API server at http://localhost:4000/graphql')
