Dgraph for App Developers

GraphQL doesn’t have to be hard.

Develop faster and iterate quickly

Flexible schema lets you change your types instantly with no table migrations. CRUD operations are generated and let you skip the boilerplate and focus on your app.

Build apps, not infrastructure

Built for modern developers, Dgraph Cloud uses lambda resolvers so you can write your custom logic in Javascript. Built-in auth lets you annotate your schema with rules, or use JWT-base auth with third-party providers like Firebase auth or Auth0. Plus, when keyword-based search just isn’t enough, Dgraph Cloud lets you use full-text search.

Start with our sample apps

Iterate on existing source code or simply test some sample apps. Deploy them in your Dgraph Cloud in one click.


Let users manage tasks on a personal to-do list. Built in Dgraph Cloud with React and Apollo, plus Auth0.

Message Board

Manage lists of posts in different categories with comments. Built in Dgraph Cloud with Vue and Typescript, plus Auth0.


Quickly create surveys and visualize responses. Built in Dgraph Cloud with React and Typescript, plus Auth0.
