Hey Steve, sorry about the confusion! Let’s clear that up!
Graphcool Cloud will continue to exist; you will be able to deploy services to a free development cluster, or to a cluster on platforms like Digital Ocean, AWS or Azure.
The migration being talked about in this thread is migrating a Framework service to a Graphcool 1.0 service. We’ll release more material about that soon. Furthermore, we will continue to support the Graphcool Cloud for the Framework, too
Do note that the free development cluster runs on shared resources. For larger apps we recommend hosting Graphcool on a dedicated cluster instead.
Regarding your second post - what you can do with resolver and operationX functions in the Framework is much simpler accomplished by a plain GraphQL resolver in Graphcool 1.0.
Instead of relying on a strongly opinionated developer experience and API when working with Graphcool Functions, you can now rely on the best practices in the GraphQL Ecosystem.
Note that the concept of subscriptions triggering a webhook continues to be present in Graphcool 1.0
I do hope that my answers were helpful, let me know if you have further questions!
