AWS AppSync opinions

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?

Looks interesting, as always from AWS.

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

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.
