BlogQL: Storybook and Mocked Service Workers

One of the most interesting new technologies I learned about during the development of BlogQL is Storybook. Storybook allows you to develop and test React, Angular, and other web components in isolation. 

Once you create stories for your components, and thanks to Chromatic, you can setup GitHub Actions to check each incoming Pull Request for changes to your UI, a visual diff! You can require that a developer approve each change. I found that all pretty compelling and started to develop stories for all of my React components. 

The hardest part of this work was figuring out how to mock the GraphQL data needed for my components. It was difficult for me because I was still learning WebPack and polyfills in Node.js, but I got it working, in part thanks to his very useful blog post: Mock GraphQL and REST in Storybook and Jest with MSW.  

You can view the BlogQL Storybook online, thanks to Chromatic: https://63b0bf0f112b2d8b80a785f5-flfdjbdgsu.chromatic.com.
