Timeframe for opening API

Is there a timeframe for opening the API more?

I'm really hoping the search people opens up to demographics and locations.

At the moment our database has 1800 people in it, and doing a search for people takes up too much memory for my web server. I am hoping to be able to search demographics separately, but the only way to do that is search all people and then filter through demographics with PHP foreach statements.

Hi Joel

Thanks for the question.

We are wanting to start working on expanding and updating the API some time after V2 is fully released.

In the mean time, if your caching some data locally, you might find the date_modified and date_added fields for the search method. This will allow you to store a copy of the data in your server, and simply refer to the recently updated members, instead of having to search through every result.

Hope this helps,
