While we’re using different APIs for our projects, we see that there is a lot of hype about GraphQL. It’s an elegant approach to solve many problems associated with traditional REST APIs. But there are some issues in GraphQL that lead to a bloated codebase or even to a dramatically slowed-down app. Today we will show you 5 GraphQL apps issues and the ways to avoid them!

You should already know that GraphQL is an open source data query and manipulation language, and a runtime for fulfilling queries with existing data. From the very start, GraphQL has been released only as a specification. This means that in fact, this is not more than a long document that describes in detail the behavior of a GraphQL serverTo use it yourself, you’ll have to build a GraphQL server yourself or use GraphQL API out-of-the-box.

So, what issues we talk about?
