Thank you! I’m actually working on a follow-up post that addresses exactly that question. While GraphQL, being a protocol instead of an architecture, addresses some pain points like schemas and querying, it in my opinion throws out some of the most important advantages of REST (resources and a uniform interface) in favour of willy-nilly custom mutations for no real reason (other than maybe nobody bothering to understand REST as an architecture). Developers love hype and battles of one technology over another but I really think they could be better together.
