Faster modern apps with Angular and GraphQL

Open Source
OlegIlyenko/graphiql-workspace
This week's open source segment is all about GraphiQL. GraphiQL Workspace adds additional features like multiple tabs, arbitrary endpoints and headers to the GraphQL tool that everyone knows and loves. As with GraphiQL, you can include GraphiQL Workspace as a component in your React application, resulting in a very versatile tool for different situations.
redound/graphql-ide
GraphQL IDE is a stand-alone desktop application for Mac OS, Linux and Windows. Other than GraphiQL workspace, it cannot be rendered in the browser, but it nevertheless has comparable features. We especially like that you can organize different projects in the app. All in all you should try both GraphiQL workspace and GraphQL IDE and see what works best for you.
