reindex-api is a multi-tenant, hosted GraphQL database solution. reindex-api converts a JSON based schema into a GraphQL API in addition to creating a database storage (MongoDB or RethinkDB) underneath. GraphQL API is fully Relay compatible and contains CRUD operations as entry points. Input is Relay-aware and declarative. Additionally, reindex-api provides Social Login with 5 providers (Auth0, Facebook, Google, Twitter and Github). Functionality of reindex-api can be extended by configuring hooks that call external web services. It also provides a rich permission system based on defining graph paths to the user type.

reindex-api was designed with scalability in mind, but so far doesn't have many possible performance improving tools, like e.g. cache or query optimizations.


  • schema creator - gets list of types and creates db independent GraphQL API
  • database connector - abstracts out RethinkDB and MongoDB specifics
  • database migration tool - abstracts out changes to the database after schema is updated
  • permission checker - checks permissions based on graph path traversal
  • multi-tenancy module - gets the api of correct user and manages apps
  • social login - manages third-party auth service integration
  • http server - manages request and JWT request authentication


  • Install MongoDB and optionally RethinkDB

  • Install dependencies

    npm install
  • Run tests

    npm test
  • Create admin app

    npm run create-admin-app
  • Create a test app (localhost)

    npm run create-app
  • Run server

    npm start
  • You can login into GraphiQL by passing the admin token in the token query string argument:
