Lily and Dom are partners at (paren), a small software consultancy that specializes in Clojure, ClojureScript, React, ReactNative, and GraphQL. They have worked with startups in Y Combinator, Techstars, and 500 Startups. They are fans of functional programming and lisp, though for different reasons.
Robust APIs with clojure.spec & GraphQL
Wouldn’t you like to define and consume your entire API with clojure.spec?
Specifying an entire REST API is a manual and error-prone process, but specifying an entire GraphQL API can be automatic and fool-proof. Though GraphQL’s type system is limited, we can use clojure.spec to augment GraphQL with capabilities beyond what the GraphQL specification is capable of expressing, and we can do this without losing robustness. When using clojure.spec with GraphQL, API specs can be easily shared between the backend and frontend and used for validation and coercion.
