    Build a Graphql Serverless Database for Your Client Apps Using Prisma


    Tools like Firebase give you a powerful API that connects directly with your client apps. Though powerful, Firebase can be difficult when writing complex data to the database or querying for a complex data structure.

    GraphQL, on the other hand, has a powerful API too and an easy Graph spec to query and write to your data source. Unlike Firebase, it doesn't come with a data persistence layer.

    Prisma is an open source database layer for GraphQL projects. It serves as both an ORM and also hides the complexity of writing complex resolvers.

    This lesson shows how, without a server, you can Firebase-like GraphQL database that your client can talk directly with.
