GraphQL is a query and update standard defined at GraphQL is natively supported by Dgraph, without requiring additional servers, data mappings or resolvers. Typically, “resolving” a data field in GraphQL simply corresponds to walking that relationship in Dgraph.

Dgraph also auto-generates access functions for any GraphQL Schema, allowing users to get up and running in minutes with Dgraph + a GraphQL schema. The APIs are auto-generated.

GraphQL is internally converted to the (similar-but-different) DQL query language before being executed. We can think of GraphQL as “sitting on top” of DQL.
