Explore the API


We host GraphiQL, which you can use to experiment with queries. Note that you won't be able to run most queries without authenticating. You can click Docs in the upper right corner to see relevant documentation.

On the left side in GraphiQL you will see examples of queries and mutations in the top, and the variables and arguments in the bottom. These are helpful for inspiration and to get quickly started using the API.


We also host Voyager, which gives you are move visual overview of how the API is built.


You will need an access token to use the Public API. Contact Famly Support to get an access token assigned to your user.
