  • 09/05 18:15:01 Lashawna: nice

  • 09/05 18:16:12 Lashawna: not to change subject but is anybody here actually using graphql in production or still on REST endpoints
  • 09/05 18:17:17 Lashawna: I really want to figure out why I should use graphql just havent found a reason for my use cases. Im sure Im doing it wrong™
  • 09/05 18:17:45 Lashawna: Im worried about clients overloading the API endpoint with overly complex queries
  • 09/07 23:49:57 Nathanael: The popular elixir library (Absinthe) allows you to add cost values to fields in the query and then set a threshold. The cost of a query is calculated before the query executes, so you can reject clients that ask for too much
  • 09/07 23:50:05 Nathanael: Not sure about other language support for that
  • 09/07 23:50:42 Nathanael: I built a hobby app using it, very nice. We don’t use GraphQL in production though, sadly too far invested in JSON Api
