Build forms with GraphQL

Charly Poly at ReactEurope 2019

Check out Charly's project here https://frontier-forms.dev/ Forms are an ubiquitous element in the web. Most of web ecosystem tackled this subject years ago (Rails, Symfony, …), however, what about the JavaScript (especially SPA) ecosystem? While most of current solutions (redux-form, Formik) provides full-features and widely used solutions, we are gonna focus on “typed forms”. In a JavaScript ecosystem being more and more “typed” with the expansion of both GraphQL and TypeScript, why not take advantages of typed data? “Typed-data” means, no more duplicated logic between the back-end and the front-end (fields list, validation, etc). We will explore an alternative way to manage forms using types and GraphQL.
