My apologies I'm not looking for something that I don't need you install.

I was just wondering if anyone had experience with graphql and mongoose and Clips Blaine some differences.

Sorry about that

Hi Peter. As they mentioned before, graphql does not store data (it is not a database). It is a query language for APIS. In other words, it allows you to communicate with an api through queries like "SQL", that's all. It is more like a tool, that allows to work with an architecture different from the traditional REST APIs that work through endpoints and HTTP methods. I highly recommend reading the documentation, it is vastly fresh! :) graphql.org/learn/

I have been working my way through YouTube conferences, docs and examples. Cannot wait for comprehension to give way to practicality
