gqlr = GraphQL + R: a data query language and runtime
Since 2012, Facebook has developed GraphQL: a backend agnostic data query language and runtime. GraphQL drastically reduces the number of server requests created by the browser by using a dynamic and nested query structure. Using the Working Draft Specification for GraphQL,
gqlr implements a full GraphQL server within R.
gqlr allows users to supply their own R functions to satisfy the data requirements of a GraphQL query generated by the browser.
