  • Is Scala and Play Framework dying?

    Two alternatives for service frameworks come to mind. Finatra, the tried-and-tested service framework built and maintained by Twitter. Alternatively, ZIO (and its broader ecosystem) is a rising start that fully embraces functional programming and all its incredible benefits.

  • How is this calculating complexity?
    1 project | | 18 Oct 2021
    I am taking a look at Resolver from the Sangria GraphQL library and I cannot figure out how calcComplexity works. The code in the `Success` us really confusing to me. Where is the complexity getting calculated?
  • Where is this value coming from?
    1 project | | 17 Oct 2021
    I started taking a look at QueryReducer from the Sangria GraphQL library and I am having a really hard tracing the logic for rejectMaxDepth. More specifically, I don't understand why depth is a parameter to measureDepth, where it is coming from, and how the depth is being calculated in measureDepth.
  • How (Not) To Build Your Own GraphQL Server

    Instead of constructing an object, it uses classes to define the types and operations for the schema that it generates. The schema generated by this implementation will have the same structure as the schema created with graphql-js. Using classes to define your schema has the advantage of being less mutable and more structured when writing code. Similar implementations can be found for TypeScript with the library TypeGraphQL or Sangria GraphQL for Scala.
  • What is the state of frameworks and libraries support to build microservices in scala?

    As Api gateway we use sangria on top of Finagle (finch to be precise) and that has been a huge boon in making the connection between microservices and frontend seamless/safe.
