GraphQL is an open source query language that’s a modern alternative to the REST-based architecture. It uses a strong type system to define the capabilities of an API and allows developers to easily describe, define, and request specific data. With GraphQL, developers have the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more. There is no over fetching or under fetching of data. It is also more efficient with data transfers since it has the ability to get many resources in a single request to the server.
