Living APIs, and the Case for GraphQL — Brandur Leach🔒 brandur.org
Thoughtful reasoning for using GraphQL as your API structure of choice.
A vanilla installation of GraphiQL is a more powerful integration tool for users than what 99% of REST providers have, and it’s available automatically, and for free.
I’m not sure if this happens in other industries, but this does seem to argue for a REST v. GraphQL. Does it have to be versus? It would seem likely that we could suggest REST is better for what it does, representational state transfer, and GraphQL would be best for what it does, deal with connected data?Posted on June 10, 2018 →
