And are they a reasonable substitute for Meteor’s live queries/reactivity? I haven’t followed recent developments in Apollo but they had a big release recently and GQL is also quite mature now. I know it won’t be as easy to use/seamless as Meteor, just wondering how well it works and if anyone is using it.
I’m developing a Meteor+Apollo app, and subscriptions work well. It’s very straightforward:
- You have a GraphQL resolver that talks to the database to mutate it.
- That resolver fires off a message to
pubsubthat the mutation has occurred.
- Any clients whose
pubsubvars say they need to know about that particular mutation, receive a message that the mutation has happened.
