Request change on API for less calls
Hi Windy Devs,
I have a request. In my project, I record all the windy weather stations every 10 minutes. When I started this, 3 years ago, there were less than 500, now there are more than 5,000.
So to avoid making 5000 calls from my server to yours, I now detect via the endpoint https://stations.windy.com/pws/stations/ the date of the last update and if it is more recent than what I have in base I import the new data. But it still makes between 1000 to 1500 calls every 10 minutes. I find that it overloads my server and yours unnecessarily.
Most of the other weather station services, it is possible to have in a single call, the list of weather stations and the last values recorded by the station. There is often another endpoint for the history but in this case, I would not need it anymore.
So would it be possible to change that on your side?
