Example

Suppose there is one thing in the user's Thinkery:

GET /v1/things/get HTTP/1.1
Host: api.thinkery.me
Authorization: access-token=the-token-you-received

[
  {
    "_id": "thing-id-1",
    "title": "old thing title",
    "date": 1526961982,
    "tags": [
      
    ]
  }
]

Now we change the title of a thing:

POST /v1/thing/change HTTP/1.1
Host: api.thinkery.me
Authorization: access-token=the-token-you-received
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 77

_id=thing-id-1&title=thing title changed (this would be urlencoded)

{
  "_id": "thing-id-1",
  "title": "thing title changed",
  "date": 1526961982,
  "tags": [
    
  ]
}

Now the user's Thinkery looks like this:

GET /v1/things/get HTTP/1.1
Host: api.thinkery.me
Authorization: access-token=the-token-you-received

[
  {
    "_id": "thing-id-1",
    "title": "thing title changed",
    "date": 1526961982,
    "tags": [
      
    ]
  }
]
