This tutorial will cover the following topics:
1. Create Content Fragment Models to model Contributors in AEM
2. Author Contributor Content Fragments using the newly created Content Fragment Model
3. Explore how how Content Fragments in AEM can be queried using the integrated GraphiQL development tool.
4. Consume AEM’s GraphQL APIs from a sample WKND GraphQL React app
5. Perform advanced data modeling with Fragment References
The below video presents an overview of the GraphQL API implemented in AEM. The GraphQL API in AEM is primarily designed to deliver Content fragment data to downstream applications as part of a headless deployment.
