GraphQL vs Tastypie: What are the differences?

GraphQL: A data query language and runtime. GraphQL is a data query language and runtime designed and used at Facebook to request and deliver data to mobile and web apps since 2012; Tastypie: Creating delicious APIs for Django apps since 2010. Tastypie is a webservice API framework for Django. It provides a convenient, yet powerful and highly customizable abstraction for creating REST-style interfaces.

GraphQL and Tastypie are primarily classified as "Query Languages" and "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by GraphQL are:

  • Hierarchical
  • Product-centric
  • Client-specified queries

On the other hand, Tastypie provides the following key features:

  • Full GET/POST/PUT/DELETE/PATCH support
  • Reasonable defaults
  • Designed to be extended at every turn
