Apollo Launchpad

When Apollo Launchpad was released last week, not only were we excited because the tool is awesome, but it’s also on Netlify! Launchpad is an in-browser GraphQL server playground. You can write a GraphQL schema example in JavaScript, and instantly create a serverless, publicly-accessible GraphQL endpoint. Needless to say, this was a complicated project to take on, and the last thing the team wanted to worry about was their frontend.

This team was comparing Netlify to a few options, but ultimately the ease of use and the production-grade features (like SSL) won them over. Check out below with what the open source lead from Apollo had to say.

A few words with Sashko from Apollo...

Could you tell us about your project?
Netlify
Launchpad is an in-browser GraphQL server playground. You can write a GraphQL schema example in JavaScript, and instantly create a serverless, publicly-accessible GraphQL endpoint. Then, you can easily share that example with your friends or colleagues, and download it as a Node.js starter and continue working on it locally. The project was quite complex and we didn’t have to worry about getting frontend hosting right.
Sashko Stubailo Open Source Lead at Apollo, Apollo
Why did you choose Netlify?
Netlify

Netlify lets us completely eliminate the worries of hosting our static app frontend. We set up deploy from GitHub in about a minute, got it to run the right build script, got the domain hooked up, and turned on SSL. It was nice that it had exactly the feature set we needed, and everything was easy to find. 

We’ve compared Netlify to other options in the past, and found that it was just as simple as GitHub pages but with the production features we need, especially SSL. We used to host our landing pages on GitHub, but people would message us asking why we didn’t have SSL turned on, which was one of the reasons we looked for a different solution.

What is your favorite thing about Netlify?
Netlify
Super easy setup, and great features.
