Simple GraphQL API with Express and MongoDB

After learning GraphQL and building my first ever GraphQL API (check out for react app) by consuming the TMDB REST API using Express and creating an interface using React.js, I decided to challenge myself to see if I could utilize the same concepts and combine it with my knowledge of MongoDB and Express to create a database and perform a single CRUD operation. Finally, this is what I was able to achieve in a few minutes.

To run the app and try it out, check out the index file in my 'models' folder and add the MongoDB connection string.
