    GraphQL API in Magento 2

    The new GraphQL API turns out to be one of the major moves in Magento 2.3, as written in our first blog post. Originally, GraphQL is a query language developed internally by Facebook in 2012 and has introduced a new era in web development since it was publicly released in 2015.
