Is it possible to still use Graphcool?

I was following this tutorial about building a chat app with GraphQL, React, and Graphcool:, and stumbled upon some issues (such as being stuck on authenticating my account for deployment on a shared cluster). While searching for possible workarounds, I found that Graphcool has sunsetted on July 1, 2020.

Should I find a Graphcool alternative/different tutorial, or is it possible to still use Graphcool?

Hi there @jyoo99,

As this has been officially stated on their website as well, I would not really recommend using it in this case.

I would recommend using an alternative solution for the long run.

Regards, Bobby
