GraphQL and the Standardization of Headless?

This was sent in Issue #9 of Squirrel Notes on June 4, 2018.

I’ve been looking at GraphQL lately. I’m wondering how headless CMS might adopt some standards. GraphQL seems headed in this direction.

One of the points of my Codegarden talk (see below) is that we’re missing a common communication layer – the “SQL of headless,” if you will. It’s not REST or JSON – what we need is a standardized query language, and a common understanding of how content is modeled so we can abstract a headless CMS like be abstract a database.

What will be the “database table” of headless – the common data structure we can all accept and organize around?
