Book: Craft GraphQL APIs with Elixir and Absinthe

In addition to the Absinthe open source documentation and guides, there’s a book on the topic.

“Craft GraphQL APIs with Elixir and Absinthe”, is being published by Pragmatic Bookshelf and is currently available as a Beta ebook. The full version and paper copy will be available soon, but you can start reading now. (In fact, if you’re reading this before 1 Dec, there’s a sale going on.)

In the book, you’ll build a GraphQL-based API from scratch using Absinthe, starting from core principles — and going beyond queries, mutations, and live data subscriptions to learn how to use Absinthe’s comprehensive extensibility features to craft a maintainable, flexible system that suits you and your team.

Discover how Elixir and Erlang/OTP, with Absinthe, can help you build a GraphQL API that’s uniquely suited to scale and grow on the modern web.

The book is based on Absinthe v1.4, the most recent stable release.
