GQLevated is an open source GraphQL prototyping tool. Our Web Hosted Development Tool supplies users with customized, production-ready GraphQL code including server-side Types, Root Queries and Mutations as well as client-side Queries and Mutations. This allows developers to spend more time solving problems and less time tediously writing GraphQL code, thus ELEVATING the project as a whole. Here is a medium article describing the inspiration behind GQLevated.
And it’s free to use for everyone – no need to create an account!

GraphQL is a query language for APIs and can be an ideal method over RESTful architecture for fulfilling queries of your existing data with less API calls. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.
However, making the switch to GraphQL on a project that utilizes relational databases and RESTful API is very time consuming and labor intensive due to its redundant structure, requiring a large amount of code to be written.
Let’s Get Started

How Does It Work?
Connect to your database
Enter your PostgreSQL or MongoDB connection string and connect to your database.
Don’t have a connection string but still want to see how it works? No problem!
Connect to our PostgresQL Sample Database and see GQLevated in action.
Generate your GraphQL code
With one simple click of a button GQLevated connects to your database, parses the data and generates the corresponding GraphQL code for you. This production-ready GraphQL code includes server-side Types, Root Queries and Mutations as well as client-side Queries and Mutations. It is displayed for you in an easy to reason about way and ready to be injected into your own application.
Export your GraphQL code
Visualize your databases
After generating their GraphQL Code, users will have the option to visualize and interact with their PostgreSQL or MongoDB databases!
