I am currently trying to build a real app with DGraph GraphQL. This means past the TODO app etc (Roles, complex deletes, updates, counts, searches… etc). You simply can’t without knowing all DGraph. How do Lambdas Work? How does DQL Work (JSON vs TRIPLES)?
The first big problem I noticed is data modeling. I think I did a full circle on certain subjects to find the answers. There are things I thought impossible that are actually easier, and things I thought possible that are doable with a good or bad hack.
But most everything has a work-around already you just didn’t know. So my question to you… – except the update-after-auth-issue
There are some of us users on discord who are creating articles, websites, etc to help spread the word of Dgraph and to make your life easier…
So, what is missing? What is not easy to find?
I am not looking for solutions on this post, but a list of problems that maybe us DGraph users can help each other with it. This includes all DGraph problems… (not bugs, that is for this forum, but solutions…)
- How do you setup graphql in react with dgraph?
- How do you delete all items in a node?
- What can’t I do in GraphQL. What are workarounds? What are the best workarounds?
- Can I run multiple queries in DQL at once?
- Did anyone read this post this far?
I am not saying these are good questions, just examples… let us other users know where the holes in DGraph documentation are, so we can help fill them in, so the DGraph team can concentrate on programming.
Someone said on the discord server that Dgraph needs to eat its own dog food to know where the problems lie. They need to build an app with their own product. Of course, that is for another topic.
We can at least show you new guys how to get there and more, as we have done it (built apps, contributions, tools, etc). There are problems, but there are solutions too.
Let us know what would be good to read about!
