with WordPress and GraphQL

WPGraphQL allows you to separate your CMS from your presentation layer. Content creators can use the CMS they know, while developers can use the frameworks and tools they love.


Efficient Data Fetching

Query what you need. Get exactly that.

With GraphQL, the client makes declarative queries, asking for the exact data needed, and exactly what was asked for is given in response, nothing more. This allows the client to have control over their application, and allows the GraphQL server to perform more efficiently by only fetching the resources requested.

Nested Resources

Fetch many resources in a single request

GraphQL queries allow access to multiple root resources, and also smoothly follow references between connected resources. While a typical REST API would require round-trip requests to many endpoints, GraphQL APIs can get all the data your app needs in a single request. Apps using GraphQL can be quick even on slow mobile network connections.
