Interesting issues on Github

  • Title: [RFC] Add a complete set of GraphQL Document examples for stress testing parsers
  • Description: The GraphQL query language is well specified with a formal grammar but is large enough that there can be subtle edge cases when constructing parsers, especially when the parser is hand written. The language also continues to be extended and library developers must stay on top of changes to the spec.
