Hi everyone! 👋 We couldn't be more excited to take this big step forward by open-sourcing the Graphcool Framework: https://github.com/graphcool/fra... This means you can now: * Run Graphcool locally (also works offline) * Deploy a Graphcool cluster to your own servers/cloud * Get involved in the development of the framework on GitHub
You can read the full blog post here: https://blog.graph.cool/introduc... Quick Start: https://www.graph.cool/docs/quic... We can't wait to see what you will be building and look forward to your feedback! 💚

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.

Pros:

Slick front-end console coupled with great CLI utlity for rapid development, AWS serverless functions, phenomenal customer support

Cons:

Needs more third-party integration support OOTB

I'm a huge fan of GraphQL & Graphcool. Every week it feels they're pushing something new and they just hit a huge milestone! Today they released their core infrastructure open source. Simply magical! This allows you to run locally, host yourself or use their hosted Cloud platform for your GraphQL needs. Well done team 👏
My experience with their cloud offering so far has made it really easy to build back-ends, and it seemed like a really powerful platform. I'm excited to see it be open sourced, more decoupled, and able to run it all on my machine!
Another awesome release by this nimble and innovative company. Thanks Graphcool team!
