GraphQL is a rapidly-ascending alternative to REST for implementing Web services. Developed by Facebook, GraphQL is popular in Web development. And, where Web service development goes, mobile app development — including Android — inevitably follows.
This book helps you understand what GraphQL is and how to communicate with a GraphQL server, both in terms of GraphQL specifications and syntax and in terms of Android code for reaching those servers.
At the present time, this book is in a “beta” state. Updates via the Warescription will be fairly rapid until the book reaches version 1.0, at which time it will be updated every few months.
