10 Popular Open-Source GraphQL Projects and Tools You Have To Try

Top 3 GraphQL IDEs

  • GraphQL Playground provides more intuitive API documentation, schema exploration, and GraphQL query debugging experience than GraphiQL with a much nicer UI. These features improve development workflows by writing, validating, and running GraphQL queries much smoother.
  • GraphQL Playground features automatic in-session schema reload, which helps avoid schema changes and breakdown during query sessions.
  • With GraphQL Playground, you can share your GraphQL Playground with other developers using the GraphQL share bin option. This can help when collaborating on projects with team members.

Top 3 GraphQL Clients

  • Caching in URQL is fully customizable through the exchanges. It supports “Document Caching” for content-heavy pages and “Normalized Caching” for dynamic and data-heavy applications. This allows you to easily set up caching on your client applications based on your specific requirements.
  • URQL has first-class support for functionality such as offline mode, file uploads, authentication, and Next.js. This support means you spend less time implementing features such as authentication in your client application.
  • URQL provides an extensibility mechanism that allows app developers to scale and customize the URQL GraphQL library to suit their needs.
