1. Efficient Data Loading
With GraphQL, you can send a query to your API and get exactly what you need, nothing more and nothing less. It’s really that simple.
GraphQL minimizes the amount of data that needs to be transferred over the network and thus majorly improves applications operating under these conditions.
If you compare this feature with the conventional intuitive nature of REST, you’ll understand that this is a major improvement to the way we initially do things.
2. One request, many resources
Another useful feature of GraphQL is that it makes it simple to fetch all required data with one single request. The structure of GraphQL servers makes it possible to declaratively fetch data as it only exposes a single endpoint.
3. Modern & Compatibility with frontend frameworks and platforms
Modern applications are now built in comprehensive ways where a single backend application supplies the data that is needed to run multiple clients.
Web applications, mobile apps, smart screens, watches etc can now depend only on a single backend application for data to function efficiently. With GraphQL, each client can access precisely the data it needs.
