#41325 closed feature request (maybelater)

Adding GraphQL support in core?

I know that REST API is the default way to expose API endpoints, and has been implemented in core since version 4.4, but is there a plan to implement GraphQL in core?

It would be a great addition especially if we consider that the core JS will be rewritten, probably in React.

Right now, there's no plan on integrating GraphQL into core. There's some great plugins moving forward with it though, and in the long-term, we may look at offering it as part of core.

That said, the utility of it has to be balanced with the amount of code that's needed to implement it, so it may be better off in a plugin forever. I don't want to offer any promises, other than saying at this stage, it's not on our short- to mid-term plans. :)
