Since being originally created at Facebook in September 2015, many developers have embraced GraphQL as a new and promising way to build APIs.
Yet 7 years later, a lot of questions still remain: when do you need GraphQL exactly? Should you hand-code your GraphQL API or generate it from your database? And will it ever replace REST?
To answer these questions and many more, we've created the first ever State of GraphQL community survey. Over 3,000 developers took part this year, and this is just the beginning.
We hope you enjoy browsing the data, and make sure to check out our GraphQL API as well!
