Apollo Composable with Vue Storybook Stories

When you first add Apollo to your Vue app using composition API you probably end up with code similar to this one:

const apolloClient = new ApolloClient({
  uri: 'https://example.com/graphql'
})

const app = new Vue({
  setup() {
    provide(DefaultApolloClient, apolloClient);
  },
  render: h => h(App)
})

One day you might decide your app became so large that it would be great to develop smaller chunks of it in isolation, storybook seems perfect fit, but when you try running it you get this beauty:

Apollo Client with id default not found

This happens because your app configuration is ignored by storybook.

Let's create a wrapper that will provide the Apollo Client for our story:

<template>
  <div><slot/></div>
</template>

<script>

import {defineComponent, provide} from "@vue/composition-api";
import {DefaultApolloClient} from "@vue/apollo-composable";
import ApolloClient from "apollo-boost";

const apolloClient = new ApolloClient({
  uri: 'http://localhost:4000/graphql'
})

export default defineComponent({
  setup() {
    provide(DefaultApolloClient, apolloClient);
  }}
)

</script>

ApolloWrapper.vue

Now you can make a story that looks like this:

import Page from "./Page";
import ApolloWrapper from "./ApolloWrapper";

export default {
  title: 'Example/Page',
  component: Page,
};

const Template = (args, { argTypes }) => ({
  props: Object.keys(argTypes),
  components: { ApolloWrapper, Page },
  template: '<ApolloWrapper><Page /></ApolloWrapper>',
});

export const Primary = Template.bind({});
Page.stories.js
