re: [Discussion] Why GraphQL? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I think the two main reasons for the GraphQL hype are the ability to get a subset of fields in a standard way (there's no standard in REST, every API is slightly different) and easily write interfaces on multiple REST APIs exposing them as a singular GraphQL API.

I don't think REST is going anywhere, but neither is GraphQL. We'll have to live with both for many years :)

After all SOAP APIs are still around
