React, Flux, GraphQL, Hack, HHVM...? All of this and more!
GraphQL continues to make headlines as does Postgres - the veteran Open Source relational database. What brings these two technologies together is a project called PostGraphile.
Previously known as PostGraphQL the project is a simple-to-use Node.js application that exposes the underlying PostgreSQL database's SQL schema through a GraphQL API.
Despite the GraphQL being a new project, it has a long history and can be considered stable. The PostGraphQL project was unveiled at the GraphQL Summit in 2016 and has continued strong momentum. The name change is mostly a branding effort as the original name is admittedly somewhat cumbersome to use.
In addition to PostGraphile, the Graphile project now adds a new toolkit to construct GraphQL APIs decoupled from the storage layer. This project is known as Graphile Build and comes complete with comprehensive documentation on how to enable GraphQL compliant Node.js APIs for existing applications.
Update: The Graphcool team recently announced Prisma, an interesting alternative to PostGraphileTweet
