That was a great thread with all the contexts provided, Ben.

This post came about at a funny time as I was looking at this GUI editor for designing GraphQL schema.

I am not used to GraphQL at all so was looking for easy way to get started with GraphQL schema design.

for people who don't want to invest the time and effort in trying to find out how something really works

It's not that I don't want to invest time & effort, but I want to get started to s**k a bit less.

I believe GUI tools help you visualize the flow your tools and would help when you want to get your hands dirty.

So I consider GUI a valuable tool.

I don't take an extreme stance that GUI is better or CLI is better. I'd just stick with whatever works the best at the current situation.
