GraphQL is a new API format for webservers to talk to clients that is rapidly gaining popularity, as an alternative to REST-ish designs. The GraphQL spec allows for "subscriptions" will allows a webserver to push changed results or events to a web-client. Building a scalable & reliable GraphQL server is a challenge.
At Hasura we've built a service that automatically generates a GraphQL API on a Postgres database. One of they key features of the Hasura service is providing "live-queries" over GraphQL subscriptions.
In this talk, I will cover the different possible approaches of streaming changes in the Postgres database to webclients in a scalable and reliable (not dropping missed events) fashion and the approach that Hasura uses.
The Hasura GraphQL engine is an open-source engine https://github.com/hasura/graphql-engine that developers use to get realtime GraphQL APIs on new or existing Postgres databases for use in their web/mobile applications.
