[WIP] GraphQL Subscriptions

This is not really a concept yet.

More a question to my friendly users. Our GraphQL implementation is very complete now. One big piece that is missing is subscriptions:

But so far I have problems to understand use cases. Is this something that is relevant for you? Do you you have other feature requests for the GraphQL part of Squidex?


Subscriptions typically are like pubsub models that create streaming of data usecases, typically an ability to subscribe to a feed of data. e.g. Squidex can enable new usecases like

  • proprietary twitter like feed applications powered just by using headless CMS,
  • gaming content feeds for frontend apps(think of like news-ticker like content) by just using headless CMS or
  • proprietary facebook news timeline like functionality for publishing houses to drive micro personalisation of content using appropriate “follow” or “like” signals given by a user

Live Queries in production using GraphQL Subscriptions

I am not sure if I have made the right comment, but just wanted to share my opinion on the same :slight_smile:
