about the subject

GraphQL, a data query and manipulation language, is the open source community’s answer to the growing complexity of the data landscape of front-end web applications. GraphQL’s ease of querying complex data—and returning nothing more nor less than necessary—makes it a simpler, more efficient, and flexible alternative to other web service architectures.

Built on the GraphQL specification, Apollo is a powerful set of tools and libraries which implements extensive research and feedback from the user community. Rich with features and techniques that simplify the data-layers within organizations, it makes rollouts of new deployments faster and easier.
