Building GraphQL servers with Prisma

GraphQL is a standard for data fetching with a rich ecosystem of tools and libraries for client-side development. With Prisma you can take advantage of this same ecosystem in your server code.
  • Manually inspect selection set or risk overfetching
  • Data fetching logic pollutes domain logic
  • Risk of SQL injection attacks
... but with Prisma
  • Optimal selection set is created automatically
  • Blazing fast queries using Prisma’s query engine
  • Type safe query DSL eliminates runtime errors
