Elasticsearch & GraphQL: a Love Letter

Learnings from using Elasticsearch as a GraphQL Backend and how to make the most out of it.
There are several libraries which expose the full Elasticsearch API as a GraphQL API. But like traditional REST APIs with Elasticsearch Backends, we mostly don’t want to expose all the possibilities which the Elasticsearch Query Language offers to the end users.
In this lightning talk I will elaborate on how we built a GraphQL API on Elasticsearch while leveraging the advantages of both.
