|Personal opinion: Looks cool, like a query language for Web APIs. You can reuse an actual implementation for different purposes, limiting the access to the data at the same time
It's a really interesting topic, because it provides a flexible way to interact with APIs and to gather only the data effectively needed in an operation
On the other hand: In a architecture based on microservice/single-function/fixed-purpose components, which already "do a single thing (and do it well)*", does the added complexity of GraphQL compared to a "plain" JSON API makes sense?
