Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
Notes on GraphQL
Jul 19, 2018 @ 10:19:15

In a post to his site Matthew Weier O'Phinney shares some notes about GraphQL usage that he's gathered over the last week or so of working with it.

The last week has been my first foray into GraphQL, using the GitHub GraphQL API endpoints. I now have OpinionsTM.

The promise is fantastic: query for everything you need, but nothing more. Get it all in one go. But the reality is somewhat... different.

He talks about his experience working with the results and the amount of data manipulation that was required to actually get at what he wanted. He shares the query he used, the result the API provided and what he ultimately wanted. He also mentions the less than useful documentation, issues with pagination and an update based on comments of pulling data from the GraphSQL API versus the REST API.
