What is GraphQL? and what are the best features of GraphQL?
A GraphQL query is a string that is sent to a server to be interpreted and fulfilled, which then returns JSON back to the client.
Best features of GraphQL API:
- Defines a data structure: GraphQL mirrors their response. This makes it easy to predict the shape of the data returned from a query, as well as to write a query if you know the data your app needs.
- Hierarchical nature: GraphQL follows the relationship between objects, this data hierarchy pairs well with graph-structured data stores and ultimately with the hierarchical user interfaces it’s used within.
- GraphQL query language reduces complexity of data fetching through abstraction. It is the fundamental programming principle of GraphQL.
When and where to use GraphQL?
Make use of this pattern when you want to aggregate data from multiple places into one convenient API. For example: aggregating datasets from multiple platforms into one place by using the GraphQL.
A proxy, in its most general form, is a class functioning as an interface to something else. The proxy could interface to anything: a network connection, a large object in memory, a file, or some other resource that is expensive or impossible to duplicate. Proxy pattern is used when you want to add functionality to an old API.
The difference between a proxy and a facade is simple. Proxies represent the original, perhaps add some functionality like authentication. Facade simplifies the original. This pattern can be used to simplify a complex API.
It is completely possible to mix and mash the above patterns. In a composite pattern you might also need to add a facade to an older API.
A GraphQL is not only a wrapper to the existing API. Anti pattern is applied if you want to provide the exact same access with a different interface, consider developing a web SDK for your clients.

The Development Workflow
Obtain the customer requirements
The necessary requirements from the customer are obtained and understood clearly for the purpose of development.
Follow a similar coding style
We always make sure to follow up with the technology and hence we ensure the coding style is just the AngularJS way. A deviated code can result in hassle and make modifications difficult while updating the application.
Check the performance of the code
Once the code is done, we keep up with the performance check through various testing functions and security checks.
Build the process
Finally, when all the clutters are cleared, the process is built. The entire project as assigned is built according to the time frame given.
Cross-check with the client
A performance cross-checking is done with the client and only when it is approved, the next step proceeds as our priority is our client’s satisfaction.
Deliver the project
The last but not the least is where we deliver our successful team work output to the client within the agreed time frame.
