Why GraphQL Does Win? [case study with GitHub API]

This all started from personal wish to try GraphQL, to see how it works, to code something, and then make a decision, based on own experience. I also tend to grasp new technologies, as fast as I can, and that is why this project dedicated to new things, at least some first touch.

Disable SVN In NetBeans

I have several projects, and some of them are versioned by SVN on different repositories.
And I added new project, which I don’t want to be versioned.
So to disable this I have edited file ~/.netbeans/VERSION/config/Preferences/org/netbeans/modules/versioning.properties

where u can add the project folder to a list of unversioned folders:

add a line:

Yes, you can uninstall Subversion, but this is not my variant.
