I work well with graphql environment, and I need to use couchdb, but his api with uris like rest api, it's for me a little old way to retrive data. Is possible to use graphql with Couchdb ? or there are plans in the future ?

I think GraphQL is a tool meant to smooth the way for you to write the custom API for your own app. Very few databases have a commonly published API as yet.

Some people have started playing with GraphQL for couchdb and pouchdb - see these repos on Github

    To your posted question, the listed projects demonstrate that the answer is "Yes". If you are looking for a supported product, that should be your question. Commented Mar 15, 2018 at 14:07
  • the answer with your links it's no, because they are old packacges impossible to use with graphql updated
