Frontend dev: Hey, could you break HTTP conventions and change the API so I don't have to manage the context of the request?

    What convention is not broken by graphql or react 😂

    I think about half of the APIs I’ve used do this. It’s ridiculous.

    Holy fucking shit. I have to deal with this every day.

    - See, the API didn't respond to my request.

    - that's because your request was malformed.

    - but this is the way we're making the call, change the API to accept it.

    @h3rp1d3v react doesnt have anything to do with how you build your APIs... could be REST, could be gRPC, could be something else.
