GraphQL is said by some to be the Next Big Thing in implementing APIs, maybe even a successor to REST. The reference implementation is in JavaScript, and has been ported to many languages. Now it is being/has been ported to Perl 5!

Already there are plugins for Dancer 2 and Mojolicious to make it trivial to add a GraphQL endpoint to your web application. In progress is a tool to scaffold a DBIxC class-set into such a web application. Another obvious possibility is scaffolding GraphQL web apps by introspecting Moose classes.

I will illustrate all of these as well as talk about lessons learned, and discuss future directions.
