Not sure if it is needed for GraphQL as well, as you already have GraphQL playground.
Swagger is a way of documenting REST API.
Recently, I have been using fastify (which validates schema with ajv), and integrate with OpenAPI v3 via fastify-oas. Still, I feel that it needs some more validation layers.
- Frontend layer
- Database layer -- I had better use SQL / ODM (on top of NoSQL)?

What about github.com/tiangolo/fastapi?
Yes, that is how I learnt about easy-to-make Swagger in the first place.
But Python is not always compatible with WebView Desktop Applications...
Also, I love TypeScript, and I feel it is better than Python for IDE.
I use swagger to document my API. What do you mean by validation? OpenAPI has a security tag that you can use.
JSON validation means that the server will not accept any wrong JSON schema.
Also, I have to make sure my database, especially if it is NoSQL, will not break with bad data.
Never trust user inputs.
if its a public API you can use ajv I guess. But if it's within a team OpenAPI will do because the team will have to create the payload from frontend to backend.
GraphQL comes out of the box with a shema graphql.org/learn/schema/. This schema can both be used in your playground as for contract based testing. So I don't see the need combine Swagger when you have GraphQL. Otherwise think Swagger is outstanding. You can generate stubs from you api swagger.io/tools/swagger-codegen/ and generate Typescript definitions from you swagger files
