Vars containing values that are not strings or String objects are ignored when using queryWithVars() in dgraph-js. This causes dgraph to return the obscure error documented in Grpc error when running query.
- Remove the check in txn.ts that enforces that args are strings or String objects.
- Coerce all values to strings for backwards compatibility with String objects.
- Improve type safety for the vars parameter so only acceptable primitives and String objects can be passed in.
Alternately, if there is a reason that only strings or String objects should be accepted, throw a usable error is a var is received that is not of those types and set the type of the vars to
string | String instead of any.
