Graphql.js

GraphQL.js is a JavaScript library for building GraphQL APIs. It's the reference implementation of GraphQL, and it provides both client-side and server-side tools. On the client side, developers can use it to consume these APIs efficiently by specifying exactly what data they need with queries tailored to their use case. On the server side, it takes care of parsing incoming requests, validating them against a schema, executing the corresponding database operations or other services calls (known as resolvers), and formatting responses according to specified types. Overall, GraphQL.js makes developing with GraphQL in JavaScript easier by providing an ecosystem for rapidly setting up API endpoints that are precise and easy to work with from both ends of network communication.
