GraphQL API

After a successful beta period, the GraphQL API is now public. GraphQL is part of the next generation of API design, enabling developers to assemble content from multiple sources and deliver it to exact frontend requirements with a single API call. The GraphQL endpoint offers powerful filtering capabilities and built-in caching, and supports both the content delivery and content preview APIs. The GraphQL API is currently available on Large and Performance space types.
