Nice article, thanks 😀

I played with GraphQL a bit and what really put me off is the schema being defined in a string, so no strong typing, no coherence between the schema and the code etc

It's kind of ok for jedi and Todo examples but a full blown API will become very difficult to manage.

Does anyone know of an implementation that doesn't rely on schema in a string?

well I think the way they solve that is by having extensions like this one marketplace.visualstudio.com/items... so you at least have tooling support. I mean it is strongly typed. You get quite good indications that you are doing it wrong if you start typing in GraphIQL, the UI environment
