I share my thoughts with @jeffwhelpley, is there a way to write the query without using strings?

It seems you haven’t seen GraphiQL IDE supported by default by all GraphQL Servers. It gives you all that you say is missing and more. That is actually a strong point.

IDE support for gql string tags is exactly the same as inline Angular 2 templates which also requires parsing using a HTML schema instead of the GraphQL one.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
