GraphQL and RDF are a match made in heaven
Developers can now build graph-powered applications with any programming language thanks to TerminusDB's latest release which includes GraphQL
Co-founder Gavin Mendel-Gleason commented, "We actually managed to implement most of the GraphQL features in two weeks with help from the Juniper library. This is exciting for our database users as it provides them with fewer constraints for their builds in terms of the language they use."
TerminusDB does some neat things with GraphQL. It automatically loads the TerminusDB schema as GraphQL schema. Users building queries can pick and choose from a prepopulated list of fields and add their arguments and filters to work with speed.
The latest release comes with GraphQL endpoints and a playground to let developers experiment with queries.
Medel-Gleason continued, "This is just the start. Our roadmap is to expand the scope of GraphQL within TerminusDB to become an analytics engine so people can use GraphQL for complex path queries to make building graph-based applications even easier."
TerminusDB has grand plans and aims to be the smoothest and most powerful GraphQL experience in the database world. It is part of the company's long-term plans to be the de facto headless CMS (https://terminusdb.com/
