    The Hasura GraphQL Engine fronts a Postgres database instance and can accept GraphQL requests from your client apps. It can be configured to work with your existing auth system and can handle access control using field-level rules with dynamic variables from your auth system.

    You can also merge remote GraphQL schemas and provide a unified GraphQL API.

    Hasura GraphQL Engine architecture

    Client-side tooling

    Hasura works with any GraphQL client. See awesome-graphql for a list of clients. Our frontend tutorial series also have integrations with GraphQL clients for different frameworks.

    Add business logic

    GraphQL Engine provides easy-to-reason, scalable and performant methods for adding custom business logic to your backend:

    Remote schemas

    Add custom resolvers in a remote schema in addition to Hasura's database-based GraphQL schema. Ideal for use-cases like implementing a payment API, or querying data that is not in your database - read more.


    Actions are a way to extend Hasura’s schema with custom business logic using custom queries and mutations. Actions can be added to Hasura to handle various use cases such as data validation, data enrichment from external sources and any other complex business logic - read more

    Trigger webhooks on database events

    Add asynchronous business logic that is triggered based on database events. Ideal for notifications, data-pipelines from Postgres or asynchronous processing - read more.

    Derived data or data transformations

    Transform data in Postgres or run business logic on it to derive another dataset that can be queried using GraphQL Engine - read more.


    Check out all the example applications in the community/sample-apps directory.

    Realtime applications

    • Group Chat application built with React, includes a typing indicator, online users & new message notifications.

    • Live location tracking app that shows a running vehicle changing current GPS coordinates moving on a map.

    • A realtime dashboard for data aggregations on continuously changing data.
