About This Class

GraphQL is a query language developed by Facebook to power their mobile applications. It's a replacement for traditional REST API's and is far more flexible and faster. With GraphQL you can query multiple resources with a single request to the server. Making it ideal for web applications and mobile apps.

It's very easy to write your own GraphQL API. It's compatible with any database and can even work across different database engines if required. Start now and have your GraphQL API running in no time!
