Like Jon I have cron’s and I often test via external tools like postman. I also code things in python that interact with sites. And then there are times to permit access to other api services by url.
But I’m not the target user for this…I already know what the path is. my comment was only to suggest an extension of what George is doing. In other words, if putting api, maybe put the whole path.
Personally, I would just create new items in the root if nothing is selected, which means having a way to click in white space to deselect after selecting soldering else. New users won’t know to cmd click.
