@export directive, it's possible for you to "export" a field value into a variable so that it can be used to join another query.
In this case, the variable you're using to join another query should probably not be exposed to the public facing API. Otherwise, it's possible for the user to set the variable themselves.
Let's look at an example:
In our case, we're using the
@export directive to export the capital field into the
$capital variable. This variable is then used in the
weather field of the country.
We've used the
@internal directive to set it as an internal variable and remove it from the public facing API.
