GraphQL Realtime

In GraphQL, there are two options for real-time updates: live queries and subscriptions.

Subscriptions are part of the GraphQL specification, whereas live queries are not.

There are times where subscriptions are well-suited for a realtime problem — and in some cases live queries may be a better fit. Later we’ll explore the pros and cons of each approach and how best to decide that to use and when.

See subscriptions and live queries for setup and usaged.
