Base schema

Here's the base schema:

type Post @model {
  id: ID!
  clientId: ID!
  markdown: String!
  title: String!
  createdAt: String

We have a Post type that has a few properties. The most important property is the markdown. This is where we are keeping up with the state of the post.

We also have a clientId to properly handle GraphQL subscriptions on the client.
