Graphpack vs Serverless AppSync: What are the differences?
Developers describe Graphpack as "☄️ A minimalistic zero-config GraphQL server". Graphpack lets you create GraphQL servers with zero configuration. It uses webpack with nodemon and Apollo Server under the hood, so we get features like Live Reloading, GraphQL Playground, GraphQL Imports and many more right out of the box. On the other hand, Serverless AppSync is detailed as "Easily and quickly deploy GraphQL APIs on AWS". It allows you to easily and quickly deploy GraphQL APIs on AWS, and integrate them with AWS Lambda, DynamoDB & others. It supports all AWS AppSync features, while offering sane defaults that makes working with AppSync a lot easier without compromising on flexibility.
Graphpack and Serverless AppSync can be primarily classified as "GraphQL" tools.
Some of the features offered by Graphpack are:
- 📦 Zero-config out of the box
- 🚦 Built-in Live reload
- 🚨 Super-friendly error messages
On the other hand, Serverless AppSync provides the following key features:
- Fast Deployments
- Create New APIs or Reuse Existing Ones
- Supports Custom Domains with CDN & SSL Out of the Box
Graphpack and Serverless AppSync are both open source tools. It seems that Graphpack with 1.88K GitHub stars and 57 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Serverless AppSync with 163 GitHub stars and 5 GitHub forks.
