“Absolutely incredible!” - just one quote from our first Amazeenar in which we explore the power of GraphQL Twig. Decoupling Drupal is the future, however, it may be a big leap to learn a whole new development stack. With GraphQL Twig, we can take baby steps with a soft-decoupled approach by writing GraphQL inside our Twig templates.
In this series we’ll take a closer look at progressive decoupling in Drupal 8. We’ll go through the project setup, check the tools and libraries and discuss potential applications. Let’s start with the definition.
A few days ago I was fortunate enough to attend ReactFest, a conference/festival organized by the React community in London. From an awesome and diverse speaker lineup to a well laid out venue, the end result made more than one happy attendee declare that it was the best conference they had ever been to.
Two weeks ago the first edition of the Drupal meetup 2018 (also my first ever) took place at our office. Besides discussing Drupal Community activities for 2018 in Switzerland, Amazee Group CTO and Partner, Michael Schmid gave a presentation on «The possible future of React, GraphQL, and Drupal».
GraphQL is becoming more and more popular every day. Now that we have a beta release of the GraphQL module (mainly sponsored and developed by Amazee Labs) it's easy to turn Drupal into a first-class GraphQL server. In this series, we'll try to provide an overview of its features and see how they translate to Drupal.
With the growing popularity of GraphQL, the obligatory host of more or less founded opinions - trying to tell you that it's all just a hype - is also on the rise throughout the internet.
Some of them have a point, some don’t, and you bet we have an opinion too.
graphql_core module bundled with the
graphql module automatically exposes types and fields to traverse Drupal’s entity system. However, since
beta 1 it does not do the same for mutations anymore. The fact that it is not possible to write or update data using GraphQL caused much confusion. I want to shed light on this topic and explain the way mutations are intended to work.
