  1. Hi – thanks for the article, very informative.

    I noticed a couple of minor points:

    1. At the step “The final step is to refetch the data when the id changes. Inside the LaunchList/index.tsx file…” this should refer to LaunchProfile/index.tsx.
    2. When running the final code, I get:
    Line 16: React Hook React.useEffect has a missing dependency: ‘refetch’. Either include it or remove the dependency array react-hooks/exhaustive-deps
    This can be fixed by adding `refetch` to the dependency list.
    3. The following step is fairly obvious, but maybe worth showing the actual code changes since all the other steps do this? “Inside LaunchList/index.tsx, be sure to import the OwnProps declaration to type the props being passed to the container component, and then spread the props into the .”

    Thanks again!

  2. Awsome tutorial! I think with the new version of react apollo, we need to update the article accordingly!

    There are 2 small issues that I found:
    – After running `$(npm bin)/graphql-codegen init`, it will complain about `@graphql-codegen/typescript-react-apollo` not found. We need to manually update it from `1.17.8` to `2.0.6`
    – We should use `@apollo/client` and `@apollo/react-hooks` instead of `apollo-boost`, `react-apollo`, `react-apollo-hooks`. Then it would be come
    import React from ‘react’;
    import ReactDOM from ‘react-dom’;
    import { ApolloClient, ApolloProvider, InMemoryCache, NormalizedCacheObject } from ‘@apollo/client’;
    import { ApolloProvider as ApolloHooksProvider } from ‘@apollo/react-hooks’;
    import ‘./index.css’;
    import App from ‘./App’;

    const client = new ApolloClient({
    uri: ‘https://spacexdata.herokuapp.com/graphql’,
    cache: new InMemoryCache()
