With GraphQL being a client-centric technology, it allows you to have fine control over how you request your data. Query responses in GraphQL contain the exact data you’ve asked for, no more and no less.

Dgraph is the world’s first (and only at this time) native GraphQL database. While this statement may sound oxymoronic to some, it tells a story of the advancements made by Dgraph Labs and their journey to becoming the #1 graph database.
