On Thursday, March 26, 2020 I pair programmed with Jacob Arriola, Senior Web Engineer at Zeek Interactive.
Zeek Interactive is a California-based software agency specializing in WordPress and Apple iOS. They recently moved their own marketing website from traditional WordPress to Headless WordPress with WPGraphQL as the API and Gatsby as the front-end.
With the recent move of their site to Gatsby, and more Gatsby + WordPress projects in the pipeline, Jacob wanted to get more familiar with extending the WPGraphQL Schema.
In this video, we walk through registering custom Types and Fields to the WPGraphQL Schema. We use the popular WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin as an example of custom data we’d like to expose to the WPGraphQL Schema.
There is an existing WPGraphQL + WordPress SEO by Yoast extension here: https://github.com/ashhitch/wp-graphql-yoast-seo
