Do you still think GraphQL was a good idea?


Although it may be new to many developers, obviously GitHub staff have been implementing and working with this technology for far longer, and this post is mainly directed at them. Do you still think GraphQL was a good idea to implement? Why? Do you think it will ever completely replace the traditional (v3) API?


I appreciate specifying exactly what I want- and how I want it to look. Seems like a much cleaner way of working with api’s in general. What do others think?


I would say it is a good idea, the number of calls is much lower, you can specify what exactly you want.

The only concern I have now is that it is not fully functional (yet).
