AWS AppSync opinions


#1

AWS has now published AppSync, a serverless GraphQL service based on Apollo with an offline-first SDK (for Javascript). I’m really tempted to play around with it.

I was wondering if anybody already had some experience with the platform? Or are there other people who are interested and/or opinionated about the combination Ionic/AppSync?


#2

Looks interesting, as always from AWS.

Did you research what data sources are supported and can be mangled into that GraphQL API?


#3

AWS AppSync supports AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service as data sources. Docs

Which is rather limiting. I assumed (wrongly) that because it was based on graphql/apollo it would be data source agnostic. Guess not.
