Discussion on: Why GraphQL?

GraphQL is one of those things that is shiny and everyone wants to use it, but most of the times it's overkill. I would say only use it for large models, models with dynamic data structures (think MongoDB), or for fetching data from multiple sources (APIs, databases, cache, files, etc.). Otherwise, stick to tried and tested simple REST APIs.
