Altair supports ‘X-GraphQL-Event-Stream’ header for better DX
Published on March 1, 2019 by imolorhe

 Implementing X-GraphQL-Event-Stream header in your server allows GraphQL IDEs like Altair to update your schema without you having to refresh manually.

Usually you would reload the docs everytime you make a change to your schema on the server, but if your server supports the X-GraphQL-Event-Stream header, it should be able to notify Altair to reload the docs automatically.
