moderating has been such a problem in an open service, but i think back then when gitter is open directly from the link, the amount of direct help given to people is way surpasses the trouble and the mess that are made by the trolls, but that's just a perspective from me.. never really see it from much higher view or from the .org perspective.
it was almost like doctors without borders

I mean the argument "there are trolls, we can't advertise this" could be given to the internet as a whole haha. Yea there's always going to be trolls, but I think it was and still is a great resource. But then I came in near the end when there was a bunch of dumb drama haha

I've only been here a few months and there doesn't seem to be much drama. Mostly people helping each other.

@JohnnyBizzel what specifically are you trying to do

@kbaig I think I will try working with this: https://www.npmjs.com/package/gatsby-source-custom-api
@kbaig I am attempting to get data from an api (one I made earlier) https://what-weather-dark-sky.glitch.me/
Just trying to get some practice with GatsbyJS

you'd make a regular fetch request in your component
Source plugins are for getting data at build time. Presumably you want to fetch data on page load

Yep
Kaz Baig
@kbaig

Then you should make a fetch request as usual, nothing specific about gatsby

I am lost when it comes to writing a GraphQL query for this.
