Concept

While setting up backend ca be complex and hard, most of the time we want to just "get things done". This is what vercel has don with front-end. While there are many ways to deploy front-ends you just want to done. Rocketgraph is the same but for backend. While there are may ways to deploy your backends like mqtt, kafka, mongo etc we just provide you a way that just gets the job done.

Most of the setups are pretty common: you need a database, authetication, security group exposig 443 ad 80, some endpoints for GET and POST, real-time data on your front-ends.

So I have isolated all these problems and provided Rocketgraph as a one-stop solution for all. While learning web development I knew how frustrating it is to write the same code for authentication over and over again for every project. So I have built in authentication in Rocketgraph that also works smoothly with your data because of Hasura.

Rocketgraph provides a complete backend with automated deployments. So you can have a production ready backend developed in under 15 minutes. It takes 15 minutes to create a todos app using rocketgraph. Check out the youtube video below to see it in action.

Where I build a todos app with database, authentication and real-time subscriptions.

It provides you a Hasura console to manage authorisations and permissions on your database, Postgres database, authentication, graular authorisation via headers and Hasura console, and much more.

Rocketgraph also comes with a lot of open-source SDKs to easily integrate with the service. Rocketgraph is also completetly open-source.

Examples

Examples come with cypress tests so you can see it i action. To run just clone the repo. Go into "auth" if you want ann example with authentication and do yarn start
