Discussion on: You don't really need Apollo

I feel apollo is overrated. Since I used REST in the past, I am more familiar with fetch and Axios. Now I have been using Graphql for few projects, and fetch works just fine. Though I haven't used swr in the past, now I will.

Part of the reason of this post is that a lot of people coming from REST will find Apollo as their first choice if they look for GraphQL. I'm trying to say fetch (and of course Axios) is perfectly fine for this!

swr offers caching, which is one of the features people choose Apollo for. That's why I mentioned it 😁

Thanks for your comment!
