Absinthe GraphQL

@absinthegraphql is THE GraphQL library you want to use. It is an amazing toolkit that implements the GraphQL specification in an idiomatic Elixir style.
Absinthe allows you to define schemas:

- define the data entities, queries, mutations, and subscriptions
- supports custom scalars
- allows deprecating definitions
Absinthe allows you to parse and evaluate documents:

- can execute any query, mutation, or subscription
- allows variable definitions
- supports complexity analysis
- support introspection
It also gives you a cool graphical interface to explore the API: graphiql screenshot of graphiql's interface
