  • Pros: 

    Easy to get started (even on an existing database as-is), yet lightweight with almost no footprint.


    No support for relay connection spec.

    Recently tried it out with our existing heroku postgres app that had a lot of data and slow APIs on our 500K+ records.. Got it working in a few minutes and now we have GraphQL!

    Super easy to setup and deploy. PostgreSQL first


    The permission UI looks a little bit confusing and no way to set multiple permissions at once

    So far, this is the most powerful and flexible GraphQL engine I have ever used.

    - Lightweight memory footprint

    - PostgreSQL specific: You get everything from PostgreSQL features like view (for masking public/private columns), triggers, you can even do data validation with PostgreSQL

    - Nice permission model

    - Auth webhook frees you from coupling data storing and authentication

    - Fast support/responses. These folks always online on their Discord channel

    I can't recommend GraphQL Engine enough

  • Pros: 

    simple and easy setup to get started for a new project


    no clear indication in the UI about database indexes and minor UI issues in permissions UI.

    simple to get started on a small SPA project with minimal effort
