crafting (and) JavaScript


I just read a post about GraphQL, and because the headline and all the article contains so much excitment and passion for the topic I read it until the end.

With a GraphQL schema in place, this becomes a nonissue. A GraphQL API can function perfectly well with a single endpoint, and it only returns the data you request. Smaller payloads equals bigger win.

and the closing and surely a tiny bit biased opinion of the article's author

Basically, GraphQL is the future of the internet. For the next few years anyway. REST was great, served a lot of good purposes, and will likely remain how we structure our services even with a GraphQL layer for our own sanities sake. But, IMHO GraphQL is the future.

There is even a spec.
