Decisions about Graphene

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Graphene in their tech stack.

Ilya Lebedev

Python's GraphQL version – Graphene – has some critical disadvantages, that we found critical: - Lack of code optimisation. It is also hard to write optimized code because of graphene node API. - Nonsecure by default. By using reversed fks, you can get a lot of extra data. To stop this, we have to explicit exclude wrong fields, which seems to be error prone. - Nonflexible code structure. You can't make abstract graphene.ObjectType class, this limits us a lot.

These are some reasons, that make us move to Django REST framework .
