Why use Prisma for your GraphQL server?

Prisma offers many features enabling you to quickly build high-performance GraphQL servers. Next to its powerful query engine and API, Prisma especially shines when it comes to developer experience.

Out-of-the-box CRUD operations

Prisma removes the need to manually write boilerplate for CRUD operations. Focus on features instead of doing repetitive work.

High-performance query resolution

Prisma client has a built-in dataloader, solving the N+1 problem and ensuring the Prisma API is queried efficiently.

GraphQL subscriptions

Easily add realtime features to your API by implementing GraphQL subscriptions with Prisma's realtime layer for your database.

Compatible with GraphQL ecosystem

Prisma is 100% compatible with the GraphQL & Apollo ecosystem: It works with Apollo Server, Apollo Client and Apollo Engine.

Type-safe resolvers

With Prisma, you’re building applications that are based on a coherent set of types, from the database to your frontend application.

Relay-style pagination

The Relay connection model is a powerful way to expose pagination in a GraphQL API. It is supported by Prisma out-of-the-box.
