Getting started with the Graphcool Framework is easy. You can simply install the CLI via NPM and run
graphcool init to setup a new service.
With the introduction of the Graphcool Framework, you can now run Graphcool on your development machine as well as your own production infrastructure. This enables a much improved development workflow, including offline development and integration in your CI pipeline.
Graphcool Cloud is our fully managed, production-ready deployment option. It is built on our learnings from operating the Graphcool Backend-as-a-Service at massive scale over the last two years and provides two deployment options:
Graphcool Cloud is the successor to the existing Graphcool Backend-as-a-Service offering. Existing Graphcool projects will continue to work, and we will be working with developers helping them to migrate to the framework in order to take advantage of the new features and workflows.
To make it easier for companies to adopt and build trust in the Graphcool Framework, weve decided to fully open-source the underlying technology. This includes the CLI as well as all server and infrastructure components you need to run Graphcool in production.
The Graphcool Framework is the result of thousands of conversations we have had with developers using Graphcool. This feedback has been absolutely invaluable in driving the development of Graphcool.
With Graphcool being an open-source framework, this is a great opportunity to get directly involved in the development process on GitHub!
