Over at OneGraph we've built and just recently open sourced an Explorer plugin for GraphiQL:

Check out the introduction blog post to learn why and how we built it and how it works.

After talking to @schickling, I would love to see adding it to the Playground as well, as more and more people are using it instead of GraphiQL. Porting should be fairly simple, but I might need some help with the styling.

I will add a PR that adds the explorer as is soon.
Some guidance and feedback would then be super useful. (cc @Huvik)

Probably not related to this issue itself:

Note: I did not check the source code yet, so if there already is something like that - forget about it.

Maybe we should think about some kind of plugin system? Seeing #935 and having some more stuff coming up soon, it might be useful to have a simple way to add those.
Might be enough to register a menu button that toggles a panel which is passed all the available data.

Hey @rofrischmann that looks fantastic! I can see explorer be part of documentation drawer on right side.

If you need any guidance you can check the latest addition of SDL view #897 or ping me here or twitter. Regarding feedback, it should somehow reflect whole playground UI and styling to fit the whole theme of the playground.

Plugins are a bigger topic, I have a working draft for plugin architecture, but I need to finish it. There are few issues addressing it #235 #648. And yea one of plugins proposed in my draft is a sidebar plugin what is adding panes to documentation.
