has anyone used GraphQL with a Ruby backend? how was the experience?

@judofyr yes! It’s a bit strange to deal with typing in ruby. If you use rails it’s also kind of an odd endpoint. But pretty easy to get going actually!

@judofyr yeah, I'm in the process of converting all of our REST api to GraphQL

I love the flexibility and simplicity it is giving on the front-end. There are a bunch of things we had to figure out on the back-end (e.g. we dynamically generate the API from our models, we have rate limiting and concurrency limiting using redis, we integrated it with our permissions system, etc.)
