Sorry Jack, but I tend to disagree. It doesn't worth the pain, IMHO. The client side has to hussle with the complexity of the backend. If you have Android ,ios, and react, you tripple the burden. BTW, something I learned recently, you can't use mutation and query at the same request.

Hey Uriel, can you give a concrete example of this?

To be fair, I agree that the toolling for graphql is indeed immature in many aspects (troubleshooting requests for example). But the main idea of asking the backend for only what you need is very interesting to be ignored, even on mobile.
