What is GraphQL?
GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. 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.

Our engine follows the GraphQL Specification, which doesn't specify any transport layer. You can integrate the Tartiflette Engine wherever you need and use whatever transport layer you want: JSON RPC, gRPC or, obviously, HTTP.
In addition to the Tartiflette Engine, and based on common integrations of GraphQL, we developed a GraphQL HTTP Library, which uses the awesome
aiohttp library to expose the Tartiflette Engine through HTTP.
If you just landed in the GraphQL world, or if you don't want to deal with the integration of Tartiflette behind an HTTP layer, we suggest the use of
For advanced use-cases, you should jump to the API documentation of Tartiflette.
In any case, this is the perfect moment to start the tutorial which is based on
