Bridging GraphQL and RDF Community Group Proposed

The Bridging GraphQL and RDF Community Group has been proposed:


The aim of this group is to explore how GraphQL and RDF can be combined,
and to what respect they can benefit each other.

This group explores possible combinations of GraphQL and RDF. We
identify and compare existing approaches that bridge these worlds,
collect use cases and requirements for such approaches, and characterize
corresponding application areas. This will produce deliverables that may
serve as input for one or more possible future standardization efforts.
Examples of application areas combining GraphQL and RDF are:
- Read/Write Access (CRUD) to and from RDF data via GraphQL queries
and/or interfaces
- Validation of RDF graphs using GraphQL schemas
- Mapping between GraphQL and RDF-based shape languages

This group aims to produce the following deliverables:
- An overview of all known approaches that combine GraphQL and RDF. This
overview will include a brief description of each approach, the
company/organization that has developed it, and links to the
corresponding documentation.
- An analysis of all known approaches that combine GraphQL and RDF. This
analysis will include a categorization across one or more facets that
will be identified.
- A final report on suggestions/possibilities for standardization.

Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and
people can join to begin work. Once launched, the group will no longer
be listed as "proposed"; it will appear in the list of current groups:
