How much effort will it take to start using GraphQL on a site based off MySQL and Eloquent?

Posted 3 years ago by thebestjohn

Starting off a new site after a few applications I've made with Laravel 5.4. I was looking at https://github.com/Folkloreatelier/laravel-graphql and the documentation isnt there for 5.4, in fact there's a lot of quality content out there for Laravel but it is difficult to follow along because every second one is written for a different version.

I'd like to use GraphQL. I like the idea of the node, edge model of database. I'd also like to play with react a bit in the future. My question is, if I were to make an application with the base functionality, how difficult would it be to move over to a GraphQL layer under eloquent in the future?
