GraphQL Question

@rik
Hey,
I have a question regarding GraphQL and TigerGraph. Can you talk to me about some architect solutions?

Hey @rohanshiva, welcome to our community!

Sure, what would you like to know?

Best,
Bruno

I am basically thinking of building a graphql connector for tiger graph and I was thinking of writing some basic template queries, and I was looking for some advice regarding that. What do you think about this? Is there a better way?

Thanks,
Rohan shiva

I think it’s a great idea!

TigerGraph is RESTApi driven:

Maybe you can check python connector for the beginning:

It is good idea. I was also looking at this, but wan’t sure how to start. Are you going to embed the connector in Apollo? Or did you have a better idea for doing this?

The problem I am currently thinking about is how to introspect the schema, and map it to something that GraphQL expects. I suspect I am overthinking this however ;).

Hey thanks for replying.

I am super new to GraphQL, so I am not sure how I am going to do it. I was going to write some generic queries and connect it to my Frontend using Apollo GraphQL.

I am interested in your idea, Feel free to reach out if you have any (TigerGraph-related technical) question, e.g. on our REST++ API.
