This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radar.Understand more

Since it was first introduced in the Radar, we’ve seen a steady adoption of GraphQL, particularly as a remote interface for a Backend for Frontend (BFF). As they gain more experience, our teams have reached consensus on Apollo, a GraphQL client, as the preferred way to access GraphQL data from a React application. Although the Apollo project also provides a server framework and a GraphQL gateway, the Apollo client simplifies the problem of binding UI components to data served by any GraphQL backend. Notably, Apollo is used by Amazon AWS in their recent launch of the new AWS AppSync service.
