GraphQL for API queries

Just tripped across this:

If we’re going to continue using the existing API for a while, it might not be a bad investment to help improve load times for scripts and possibly the site as a whole if it can be integrated properly. I do understand though that the setup for the site is a bit of a mess, so it may not be a simple thing, but figured I’d throw it out there.


I’m not familiar with the details of GraphQL, but I can certainly see where it, or something like it, could play a very useful role in the evolutionary development of Eterna.

(By “something like it”, I mean a higher level of data abstraction, one that is both more expressive and less tied to a relational data model.)
