Im making a facebook type site to learn GraphQL. Im using React on the front-end and Im looking for the easiest way to get a GraphQL backend up and running but still have a lot of flexibility.
LevelUp Tuts has a series called “full-stack GraphQL with Apollo, Meteor & React”. He users meteor-bare as a build tool and to handle accounts, with React and Apollo on the front-end. I love Scotts content but the series isn’t finished yet. I think this is a similar to VulcanJS’s approach.
The other option is to use Graphcool and go serverless. Can anyone tell me the pros and cons of each approach? I love the serverless idea of not having to manage a server and the easy scaling but I’m a little apprehensive as it’s not something Ive done before.
