Here's a quick summary of everything we released in Q1 2024.

Headless CMS for Solid.js

Hygraph is the ideal Headless CMS for Solid.js websites and applications. Read further to learn how our API-first CMS allows you to add components to your Solid.js apps in minutes and enable your website's content to be managed from a powerful CMS.

Step #1 - Create a GraphQL client

First, you must set up a GraphQL client for your Solid.js application using the graphql-request library. The GraphQLClient is instantiated with an endpoint URL, representing the location of the GraphQL server. Additionally, it configures the client's headers to include an authorization token if required by the server for secure access.

This setup is crucial as it encapsulates the details for connecting to the GraphQL API and provides a reusable client instance that can be imported and used across different components in the application to make GraphQL queries or mutations.

import { GraphQLClient } from 'graphql-request';
const endpoint = 'https://api-<region><some hash>/master';
export const client = new GraphQLClient(endpoint, {
headers: {
authorization: 'Bearer YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN', // If needed

Step #2 - Fetch Data in a Solid.js Component

Use the graphql-request client within a Solid.js component to fetch data from the GraphQL API. You can use Solid.js's reactive primitives like createResource to handle async operations.

The createResource function is used to fetch data asynchronously when the component mounts and re-render the component with the new data once it's available. The For directive is then used to iterate over the user data and display it.

import { createResource } from 'solid-js';
import { client } from './graphqlClient';
const query = `
allUsers {
function YourComponent() {
const [data] = createResource(query, async () => {
try {
const data = await client.request(query);
return data.allUsers;
} catch (error) {
console.error('Error fetching data:', error);
return (
<For each={data()}>
{(user) => (
export default YourComponent;

Why Hygraph

Choosing Hygraph for your Solid.js project

Integrating a GraphQL-native headless CMS with a Solid.js application streamlines content management and application development. Developers benefit from GraphQL's powerful query language, which enables precise data retrieval, reducing over-fetching and under-fetching issues. This efficiency accelerates development cycles and enhances performance.

Content editors appreciate the intuitive interfaces of headless CMSs, which allow them to manage content without concerning themselves with the underlying technical complexities. The decoupled nature of headless CMSs also ensures content agility, enabling editors to push updates in real-time across multiple platforms, a vital feature in today's fast-paced digital landscape.
