New Netlify Graph Dramatically Simplifies API-First Web Development
Netlify, the workflow for the modern web, announced Netlify Graph, a new approach to building with API that creates a faster, more unified experience for millions of developers. Based on the popular open source GraphQL standard, Netlify Graph allows developers to integrate APIs and services such as GitHub, npm, Salesforce and Stripe into web applications with a single click.
Today’s modern, interactive web experiences are based on a wide range of data sources across dozens of APIs. The rise of the API economy presents a huge opportunity to develop more dynamic and customized software, but working with internal and external APIs requires developers to learn, authenticate, document, and connect each to their stack. Netlify Graph provides developers with a unified way to authenticate and create using APIs. Developers can access APIs directly through Netlify, without a separate GraphQL server, which increases productivity and speeds up delivery time.
“The great decoupling of the web has created a diverse and complex collection of development tools, including many third-party APIs and services. To build a better website, we need to make it easier for developers to integrate and consume these services. said Matt Biilmann, CEO of Netlify. “Netlify Graph is a big step forward, leveraging the massive popularity of GraphQL to unite the web tool and technology ecosystem.”
The launch of Netlify Graph follows the recent acquisition of OneGraph, an innovative leader in GraphQL. Netlify Graph unlocks the power of GraphQL and helps computers take advantage of a catalog of APIs and services that any enterprise developer can find and access. It also eliminates the clutter of background integration work required to set up and manage a GraphQL server.
Netlify Graph is now available in beta and additions will continue to be added. For more information, join an online event on February 15 at 10:00 PT.
