Hi,

I'm having a great time with the API's (netduino uploads and a drupal module in the works) and I was wondering about some extra channel info.

It would be really nice to be able to query some channel details, i.e. with a channel ID and API key, retrieve the available fields, etc.

Is this doable currently?  I didn't see anything specific, so I can always parse them out, but a quick api call would be nice to have.

Cheers

Currently, the channel info is returned at the beginning of a feed request.  Do you mean that you'd like to get ONLY the channel info and not the feed info?

Yes, that's it.  I'm thinking of pulling the rest of a channel's info when a user provides channel ID and Read Key.  The more I can auto-populate the better I figure.

Ah, that'll work just fine.  I can parse out the channel and skip the feeds.

Perfect! Thanks.13
