Relay is out in preview! Have a look.

I want to tell you in as few words as possible why I am so excited to get my hands on Relay and GraphQL.

React is widely popular because it is simple and declarative, making it very deterministic and easy to work with. React is also fully composable, making it imensly powerful with high potential for writing reusable code.

Relay is a mirror image of React, except instead of composing beautiful views for the web and native mobile devices using JSX, you can compose data from your database for your views using graphql.
