Filtering API fields


#1

Is there a way to specify exactly the fields that I want to get from the API? I’m trying to implement an all-in-one Beeminder update program in the iOS Workflow app, but it keeps crashing my watch. My hypothesis is that I’m running out of RAM from the large API responses, so I’d like to trim them down to just a few fields.

I haven’t found anything to do what you ask in the API doc.

The way I would do it anyway is by implementing a custom backend that calls the Beeminder API and then returns a subset of the responses to the watch.
