  1. None that use GraphQL, just REST?

    It’s not just for websites anymore and it can be secured in the same ways as REST. For me it was key to use GraphQL with the Apollo client for subscriptions inside my React Native apps, especially when we’re also using it for React.

    The GraphQL client is available in any language besides C++ which just has a parse. So you can even use it cleanly with ejected apps, on gaming consoles etc.

    It’s easy to have one url endpoint for mobile and one for more powerful clients or just stack them if your role/auth pattern allows. You can even add a public read only one like Gatsby does to the same data source.

    Anoher nice thing is you can query your local cache (that has an identical shcema as the server) and manage app state in the Apollo client rather than bothering with ModX or React, and no need for caching in MongoDB or JSON for app state at all.
