The Graphcool platform is a backend-as-a-service that takes full advantage of the power of GraphQL.

?

Explore the platform

  • You can create your project's data schema and define different settings like permissions or mutation callbacks in the console.
  • The GraphQL type system allows you to precisely define the shape of your data schema by using models and relations between them.
  • For secure data access, you can use the built-in authentication system that uses temporary or permanent authentication tokens to determine the access level of a given request.
  • If you want to upload and download files in your project, you can use the built-in file management system.

Explore the GraphQL API

Two different client APIs are available:

?

  • The Relay API is meant to be used in Facebook's GraphQL client Relay and is conforming to the Relay specification.
  • The Simple API offers the same features and is meant to be used by Meteor's GraphQL client Apollo or lokka or even plain HTTP.

?

You can use both APIs at the same time.

?

A separate GraphQL file API is available, but you can also work with files using one of the client APIs.
