If you’ve ever wanted to use GraphQL to query dad jokes, look no further.
If you’re running a WordPress site, you can install the WPGraphQL plugin along with the WPGraphQL Dad Jokes plugin, and you can query for a random Dad Joke using GraphQL!
The plugin uses icanhazdadjoke.com to retrieve a random dad joke.
This also serves as a great example on how to extend WPGraphQL to customize the Schema for your needs.
The beauty of GraphQL is the data that resolves can come from anywhere. Even though it’s a WordPress plugin, the data that’s queried and resolved, doesn’t have to live in WordPress!
