I think you’ll like the story I’m about to tell you. I’m going to show you how to build a GraphQL API with Vesper framework, TypeORM, and MySQL. These are Node frameworks, and I’ll use TypeScript for the language. For the client, I’ll use React, reactstrap, and Apollo Client to talk to the API. Once you have this environment working, and you add secure user authentication, I believe you’ll love the experience!



Why focus on secure authentication? Well, aside from the fact that I work for Okta, I think we can all agree that pretty much every application depends upon a secure identity management system. For most developers who are building React apps, there’s a decision to be made between rolling your own authentication/authorization or plugging in a service like Okta. Before I dive into building a React app, I want to tell you a bit about Okta, and why I think it’s an excellent solution for all JavaScript developers.
