Chimp v2.3.0 released. Custom Prefixes for Monorepos

With the new version chimp allows you to set up custom prefixes for your chimp apps. That will allow you to work in a monorepo structure, without some tooling getting confused by the conflicting aliasing.
When creating apps make sure to pass the new optional arguments, like so:

npx chimp gql:create admin '~admin' '~admin-generated'   

If you create a new app that will be done for you automatically, but if you decide to add different prefixes to an existing app, make sure your code generator script reflects that for example:

chimp gql:generate '~admin' '~admin-generated'

Take a look at this repo to see working code:

  • 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 :)
