Guides

Apollo Elements helps you build full-scale, high-performance GraphQL frontends with state-of-the-art web technologies. Use your favourite web components base library like lit-element or FAST; or write your components with vanilla JS. If you're starting from scratch, use the app generator to bootstrap a project.

npm init @apollo-elements
npm init @apollo-elements -- app --pkg-manager yarn
pnpm init @apollo-elements
