GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.

Mediacurrent Launches a Drupal Theme Generator

In a fast moving industry like ours, it is imperative that we have tools that allow us to build environments (front and back-end), quickly, while providing consistency all across.
