  • TailwindCSS for styling and reusable components.

  • Codegen for typesafe graphql queries and mutations.

  • Graphql-Request as API client for client-server communication

  • React-Query for client-side data caching and query caching

  • Typescript to maintain code quality and write type-safe code.
