In the last few days I’m experimenting with substituting CRUD API code with Stored Procedures which directly produce the endpoints JSON as a single-row scalar value. API is then just a wrapper that authenticates, validates input and streams the DB’s JSON directly to the client.

More side effects:

The general direction of the dev industry is heading in the opposite direction. More ORMs, more layers, more database abstraction. More weird proprietary cloud databases with each their own limited capabilities and query language.

So you tell me: Is it crazy? Is it wrong? Why do I have doubts despite everything working out beautifully?
