In order to use WordPress with the Jamstack, we want to be able to read data from WordPress using GraphQL. By adding WPGraphQL, we enable a powerful GraphQL API for our WordPress sites, and WPGraphiQL gives us an in-dashboard interface for testing GraphQL queries.

Because these are developer-focused plugins, they’re not available the standard plugin library, so we need to install them from GitHub using the CLI.
