Thanks @marc - I meant the inverse. Do you have any good resources on how to learn + set up a graphql server without knowing Node?

I'm building something, should be live soon. Building a bot

@marc Any advice for learning GraphQLl in the Rails world? All the resources seem to revolve around Node, and I have trouble going through those tutorials.

Maker of WIP amongst other things.

You can use this code as a starting point: gist.github.com/marckohlbrugg…

I don't have any great resources other than that, but I think if you just tweak the query it should go a long way.

You can also experiment with queries on wip.co/graphiql

Thanks for the feedback! @marc and @gvrizzo - could I poll you on these potential taglines to put in the hero of the homepage?

  1. “Personal homepage + newsletter, made easy”

  2. “Start a personal newsletter on your own site”

  3. “Start a personal newsletter on your own domain”

  4. “Create your personal homepage”

Which do you prefer? (1, 2, 3, or 4)

I commit code every single day and build a streak. It doesn't matter how big the commit is - but it needs to happen every day. I like this approach because I'm constantly thinking subconsciously about what I'm going to do next. So, when I sit down to do the work - it's really easy to jump straight into building because my conscious memory already has context.
