Developers often seek ways to make their codebase as homogenous as possible, in the belief that it’s easier to maintain an application when everything looks and behaves similarly. This can be true to an extent - it’s why we settle on certain architectural patterns, code styling norms, etc.
This is partly why backend developers lean heavily on ORMs - it’s easier to think in your target language alone, rather than worry about maintaining SQL with C#, Python, etc.
But the more I’ve learned about SQL, the more I wonder: isn’t it odd that we build further abstractions on top of an already declarative language like SQL?
I recently discovered a couple tools that pose a different solution: what if we generate our API from our SQL schema?
