The Beat

Interesting issues on Github

  • Title: Redefine the problem that "struct" is solving
  • Description: Advice: Back up from proposal to redefine the problem. For input unions that was very helpful. A lot to like, but also opening up a lot of things we decided against. Sounds a bit like a panacea. We might solve all problems, but in an inadequate way.

Interesting discussions on Github

  • Title: "Metadata Directives" Proposal
  • Description: Given the revived discussion around schema metadata and their relationship with SDL directives, I'd like to propose a high level direction for this. My goal here is to introduce something with as few additional moving parts as possible. It's intended to be simple rather than robust.
