Chimp 4.0 - resolvers for extended federated types

The Chimp 3.0 and previous versions always generated resolveReferences resolvers for all federated types - the types that were annotated with @key, like so:

extend type SomeFederatedType @key(fields: "uuid") { }

Add @compute now to it to keep the previous functionality:

make sure your chimp-graphql-codegen-plugin version dependency is at least 0.2.0

We've noticed that that resolver was frequently unused and left a significant amount of unnecessary code in projects (resolvers + tests).

If you want to keep the previous functionality, mark all federated types with @compute.

extend type SomeFederatedType @key(fields: "uuid") @computed { }

If you do have unnecessary files produced by previous versions of chimp you can remove them now safely.

Make sure your chimp-graphql-codegen-plugin version dependency is at least 0.2.0, otherwise the codegen tool will complain that you are using the @computed directive incorrectly.

  • For loops in JavaScript (vs _.times)

    From time to time I still see a for loop in JavaScript codebases. Linters are frequently angry about them. Let's see how we can replace them.

  • Sharing scalars between modules with Chimp

    Simplify your Chimp-based project even further with a new @predefined Scalar directive.

  • Adding TypeScript to the official Apollo Platform Tutorial app

    In todays video I go through a preparation of the official Apollo Platform Tutorial App for adding Chimp to it. I decided to divide that task into two steps - first is adding TypeScript to the codebase. Watch me work, struggle, fly through code, hopefully you will learn some tricks :)
