Discussion on: Do you prefer GraphQL over REST?

Yeah I love GraphQL but I prefer REST. At first making a GraphQL API is in my opinion much more complicated than making a REST-API (in Java, Node, Python etc.). You can write a simple GET Request in 3 lines in Express (framework on Node.js).

I also think that GraphQL has not enough pro's over REST to replace it.
