Add GraphQL Subscriptions
Hi all - we are now in the midst of the research phase for GraphQL Subscriptions and plan to start work this year. If you have any additional feedback or considerations around this project, please feel free to add additional comments here or email me at email@example.com
Could somebody from the MongoDB team about the status. It is a showstopper for us. We tried to use watch() but it is unreliable and stops after sometime.
Any news ?

Please add graphql subscriptions and this is something which makes graphql really unique and awesome.
GraphQL without subscriptions is just an organized HTTP.
No need to discuss, it's the basic and essential advantage of graphql. Needed to support the graphql subscription urgently.
Yes please. Essential!
Currently there are no way to implement query based sync. Query based sync removed from SDK, Subscription not supported on GraphQL no way to synchronize partially with Realm
Having one neat graphql api is a great developer experience.
There aren't alot of options for true serverless subscriptions. We're forced to build out a sophisticated stack in order to play ball. Not going with appSync.. more to the likes of App-Engine Flex with a tight grip on subscription management and load balancers. would much rather use realm.
Realtime data is becoming more of a standard in web and mobile applications. Polling is a workaround strategy but can become a big problem for your application depending on what data your are polling.
Subscriptions would put Realm higher on my list when considering a stack for new projects.
Agree, this is the only thing preventing us to move away from Firestore
Please add this amazing feature!
This would greatly benefit our use case. :+1

Looking forward to this feature, it will surely compete with appsync
I'm waiting for this feature!
Without it, you need to set up a separate node.js server somewhere else by yourself and that reduces the value of realm's great built-in graphql backend.
I think one of the use-cases where the nature of mongoDB will shine is an app that requires realtime feature. Subscription should be must-have in the Atlas-Realm world.
This would be very helpful.
