hi again, I am learning GraphQL with Elixir this days, it is looking so funny. I have a question about chat app with this api. For chat app we will need rest api for instance ?
In my opinion, I prefer to use REST api for a chat app since its easier to build and get started.
yes definitely I am use absinthe , but I have qurious about how u implement the api with chat api . If you have server , why you will need api?
You could use websocket instead…
It is very powerful
I misunderstood, if you’re gonna build a chat app and you’re using phoenix, then you can leverage phoenix channels.
no I mean for example if you want to use develop mobile chat app like viber or telegram, u will need chat server like ejabberd, mongooseIM …etc, but I have curious about why you will use Rest Api? those companies use api for communication between mobile client and chat server?
I love elixir and erlang with xmpp and ejabberd , why u recommend websocket?
Because it is more reactive than REST, or GraphQL api.
Phoenix channels are something You should try, if You don’t know what it is…
tnx for ur recommendation, appreciated
