I'm pretty skeptical of a large GraphQL API's performance over time, but have never worked with one. I'm starting a new job in December whose primary api is a flask based graphql one tho, so I'll find out soon!

I've read about some other devs being skeptical about using it on large projects, too 😉 Tho, it is a widely-used tool nowadays, and every situation you could possibly face should already be backed up by some workaround/best practice 😉
