In his talk at React Con 2018, Conor Hastings
offers up an interesting proposition: GraphQL without GraphQL. Sharing his RouteQL
project, he offers a possibility for how people could consider taking on some aspects of GraphQL in their code, specifically the power of the query system, without having to implement all of the aspects of GraphQL. As he points out in is talk, the code is compatible with GraphQL, so it could potentially make a migration to GraphQL in the future easier.
