Since version 0.7.3 BaasBox allows you to query a document for a single field or update the value of that field without sending the entire document to the server: this could be useful in several scenarios when you want to simply check a value change while polling the server, or update the state of an entity without sending the entire object.
We decided to use URLs to define which field we want to work with: we think it’s a straightforward mechanism and in the future it could easily be extended (i.e. to specify query on linked documents … link to documentation or to limit the results with constraints
where field == 'xxx')
Let’s define our data model for this tutorial: we are building the next generation bugtracker called Bugbox.
