Wasn’t the whole point of REST that it was object (resource) centric? Not saying graphql isn’t, but there’s not much of a difference in that regard. If anything I’d say graphql is more about the relationships than the objects.

Graphql is more composable for querying, so that’s nice. In terms of mutations, it’s basically just RPC again (and a lot of us missed RPC when REST became popular). And then it has a model for subscriptions, but they still feel a little like second class citizens support -wise at the moment.

None of these are judgements. Just interesting to compare the 2 ideologies.
