GraphQL and graph databases.

Four basics behind a graph database are

Nodes: The primary data elements


Relationships: How two nodes are connected

Nodes may have multiple relationships


Properties: Attributes of a node or of a relationship


Labels: How nodes are described and grouped together as sets

------

Nodes may have multiple labels


Labels get indexed and optimized, making it easier for them to be quickly located


Graph databases shift the focus of their data models to the relationships, which makes retrieving complex data structures much easier.

They abstract nodes and relationships into one structure.

But what is GraphQL ?
