Apollo vs Reindex: What are the differences?

Apollo: GraphQL server for Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa and more. Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes; Reindex: GraphQL backend as a service for React and React Native apps. Reindex makes it easy to set up a GraphQL backend that stores the data for your application, handles security with user authentication and permissions, and is easy to extend with webhooks. You can focus on building an awesome app for your users.

Apollo and Reindex can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Apollo is an open source tool with 7.53K GitHub stars and 935 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apollo's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about Apollo and Reindex
Márton Danóczy

We wanted to save as much time as possible when writing our back-end, therefore Apollo was out of the question, we went for an auto-generated API instead. Hasura looked good in the beginning, but we wanted to retain the ability to add a few manual resolvers and modifications to auto-generated ones, which ruled out Hasura. Postgraphile with its Plug-In architecture was the right choice for us, we never regretted it!
