I'm happy to announce that ShopGun's GraphQL code is now open source:


GraphQL (http://graphql.org) is a query language for the web which is an
alternative to RESTful web services. There are some similarity to Joe's UBF
stack as well, though it is a completely different take. Originally from
Facebook, we implement a GraphQL engine which is almost fully featured in

I have a talk at the Erlang Users Conference 2017 on this project, but we
are releasing the system early since we are far enough in its lifetime to
do so, and there is little reason to keep it closed anymore. If you are
interested in this project, please come see the talk :)

Because GraphQL is a fairly large system, there is an accompanying tutorial
to the project, which uses the graphql backend:


and it has a quite complete tutorial book written as well (pending some
sections which is still being written)


It is our hope that the tutorial will help people use the repository and
build some great software on top of it.

As always, comments are welcome. Either in this thread or in Issues in the
projects if need be. PRs are also accepted and we want to encourage an open
development strategy on the system. While the project probably still has
some rough edges, we expect to grind them down over the coming months.

Happy Hacking on behalf of the ShopGun team :)
