    This initializer is a straightforward client, and there are some improvements you can make here. First, it's never a good idea to hard-code API secrets in your code. A better option would be to use Rails secrets or environmental variables. Second, you can load the schema just once and dump it to disk to faster read after. There are examples in the library documentation on how to make these improvements. For our little project, we will keep it simple.
