Quickstart Edge Caching

Let's create a service and use it in production!

1. Create Stellate service

To get started, sign up for Stellate and create a Service that points to your backend. Your service in this state won't have any configuration added yet. Without further configuration, you can already get the full benefits of Stellate's GraphQL Metrics, just by using Stellate as a proxy in front of your GraphQL Backend 🤯.

1.1 Optional: Support for cookies

If you use session cookies instead of headers, please have a look at this guide before activating Stellate in production.

2. Enable Stellate in Production

To enable Stellate in production, you simply replace the code in your GraphQL Client to point to Stellate instead of your GraphQL Endpoint:

import { createClient } from 'urql'

const client = createClient({
- url: 'https://my-graphql-backend.com',
+ url: 'https://my-backend.stellate.sh',

This is too risky for you and you'd like to roll it out gradually? No problem. Check out this guide on how to enable Stellate just for specific operations.

Once things are set up, you can now check out your metrics dashboard and see the first traffic flying in:

Congratulations, you just set up Stellate 🎉

Ok, what next?

3. Enable the Stellate product suite

Now it's time to try one of the Stellate products. What ever you're interested in using, from here you can check out the guides for the products of the Stellate Edge Suite:
