Graphcool is a backend development framework to develop and deploy production-ready GraphQL microservices. With Graphcool you can design your data model and have a production ready GraphQL API online in minutes.
We're using Graphcool to help develop our backend for a new startup going live in January (we'll be on PH soon :) ). I had no prior GraphQL experience before diving in, and it's been freaking incredible to work with. The front-end console let me dive right into building without much experience while the great CLI tools let me transition to a more customized workflow when I had become more familiar with the API and infrastructure.
But above and beyond the framework itself (which is phenomenal for rapid backend DB, serverless function, and API development), is the customer support and documentation. I've never worked with a better team. The tutorials and documentation are extraordinary and every question or problem I've run into has been solved within 15 minutes.
If you've been on the fence between Firebase or other BaaS solutions, jump into Graph.cool. I guarantee you won't look back.

Needs more third-party integration support OOTB
