utilities/file_location_listing#38: Nest results within the API Response Format

Issue Information

Issue Type: issue
Status: closed
Reported By: btasker
Assigned To: btasker

Milestone: v0.2.3
Created: 07-Jan-24 11:12


Currently, the search endpoint returns a simple JSON list of results:

    { blah },
    { foo }

This doesn't leave any room for the API to communicate additional information about the search (or, perhaps, return an error message etc).

It might, perhaps be better to change that to be more like

  "results" : [
    { blah },
    { foo }

So that additional attributes can be added at the top-level

This, obviously, would be backwards incompatible.

I don't currently have a pressing need for this change. But, currently, I am definitely the only user of the codebase - it's probably better to make this change now (and set us up for any future need) than to find it's needed later only to find that someone else has started using it.

changed title from Nest results with the API Response Format to Nest results with{+in+} the API Response Format
