What is Prisma?
Prisma is a next-generation ORM that consists of these tools:
- Prisma Client: Auto-generated and type-safe query builder for Node.js & TypeScript
- Prisma Migrate: Declarative data modeling & migration system
- Prisma Studio: GUI to view and edit data in your database
Prisma Client can be used in any Node.js or TypeScript backend application (including serverless applications and microservices). This can be a REST API, a GraphQL API a gRPC API, or anything else that needs a database.
