A question we’ve commonly been asked is how “Hasura compares to Prisma 2”, or “How Hasura compares to Apollo (Server)”.

To answer this question, the ideal scenario is probably to discuss:

  • The functionality each of the tools provides
  • Where each piece typically lives in an application, and their relationships to each other


Hasura is a web service that connects to one or more data sources, and exposes a GraphQL (and optionally, REST) API for the data source.

It allows you to federate/compose/stitch other REST or GraphQL API’s into this data-source graph, to create a unified data-access hub.

A configurable authorization…

PostgreSQL Tricks

I had posted this question on platforms like Twitter, HackerNews and Reddit and got some interesting responses. In this post, I’m collating a bunch of these discussions to help frontend or full stack developers work better with PostgreSQL for their app.

As the app grows in size and user base, database typically becomes a bottleneck for various reasons. And I’m not even talking about resource consumption, memory, connection limits etc which will haunt admins at some point. …

With beta.1 available for about two weeks, and an immense amount of helpful feedback from our community, we are pleased to continue our march towards 2.0 final with the release of 2.0.0-beta.2.

What is a ‘beta’?

Let us explain what a ‘beta’ is to Hasura.

  • The…
