Prisma is a performant open-source GraphQL ORM-like layer doing the heavy lifting in your GraphQL server. It turns your database into a GraphQL API which can be consumed by your resolvers via GraphQL bindings.

    Pros: 

    Awesome team that's heavily involved in open-source and pushing GraphQL forward.

    Cons: 

    I liked the cool Graphcool name.

    I have followed the team pretty much since they launched the beta of Graphcool more than two years ago. Since then I've watched them iterate on the product, rewrite it, write a ton of open-source libraries, and rewrite it again to deliver the best tool to build your own GraphQL server.

    The GraphQL community today stands on three pillars: Apollo, Prisma, and Facebook itself. It's amazing to see these guys evolve the product and take the company to the next stage.

  • Pros: 

    Super easy to get started and iterate

    Cons: 

    No backups yet, but they are coming soon

    I never had a database/backend up and running so fast. Especially loving the new architecture which gives full flexibility to the developer regarding authentication of users and authorisation to change/access data. It is also easy to integrate data from other services into the own API, no vendor lock in at all!

    I recently reported an issue on a Friday afternoon on GitHub and it was solved within 24 hours, which is just great.

    I can really recommend Prisma!

Update: We also have some other exciting news to share today – We just announced our $4.5M seed round led by Kleiner Perkins: https://www.prisma.io/blog/prism... ______ Thanks a lot for hunting us, Jamie! 🙏 Hi everyone! 🙌 Today is a pretty big day for us that we've been working towards over the last 6 months. Since the release of Prisma 1.0, we've seen thousands of developers start using Prisma to build their GraphQL servers and have received incredibly positive feedback! As Prisma has become our main focus, we're very excited to officially rebrand to Prisma today including a complete redesign of our website and cloud product. With our mission of building the data layer for modern applications we're always trying to make development simpler & easier – especially in regards to databases. We've recently introduced support for Postgres and are working towards adding support for all major databases. If you haven't tried out Prisma yet, you can get started over here: https://www.prisma.io/docs/quick... Please let us know if you have any questions! 👋

Can vouch for Prisma as the most awesome tool out there to convert your database into a flexible GraphQL API. I have already taken 3 apps to production with Prisma and in development are 2 apps and a telegram bot. Prisma has successfully removed my backend worries. Congratulations to the team on the launch today!

Can’t emphasize enough how Prisma shortens the overall development time! I’ve rewritten a whole backend platform a couple of weeks ago and it took me just a month to do so. For comparison: the previous iteration (without Prisma) took half a year. It was amazing and most importantly: a fun ride! HUGE ”thank you“ to the team and congratulations on the launch today!
