GraphQL API for the Microsoft Graph
Facebook's GraphQL is the perfect API solution for the Microsoft Graph. I highly encourage you to implement this, since it would improve development for React apps.
Thanks for your feedback! We are doing some investigation into GraphQL. We’ll keep you posted.

My team at Medtronic is moving resources to GraphQL. As Office365 E3 customers, we are hopeful that Microsoft legitimizes this effort! MS Graph API is fantastic, converting or wrapping with a GraphQL API would take it to the next level.
This would be very exciting and enable more mobile apps with O365 .
The github was not updated for a while, are you still working on this? thank you.

For those interested (e.g. me), there appears to be some demo code here; https://github.com/microsoftgraph/graphql-demo
We're currently working on a fully fledged application leveraging our own graph interface against Cosmos and a rather large set of Azure services. It would be great to be able to consolidate the pipeline using graphql everywhere, instead of having to use the old API's. Especially if it could be integrated nicely with Azure SSO.

Yes, please. Making Office data available on mobile efficiently would encourage the creation of custom mobile apps which can leverage the huge amount of data in Office.

GraphQL for Microsoft Graph is exactly what we've been looking for!

GraphQL would be a great enhancement to the Microsoft graph. Since Office 365 stores so much data, the ability to use GraphQL, a more efficient way to query the data than REST, would be a big plus.
