The GraphQL tool started a simple GraphQL Server to make requests across all Wikimedia wikis. Over time it became apparent that the tool was duplicating a lot of the same code that already existed in MediaWiki. The GraphQL Extension was created in order to remove that code duplication. In the future, the tool will be used as a federated gateway in order to make queries to all of Wikimedia's wikis from a central endpoint.
