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": "thing title",
    "date": 1519376052,
    "tags": [
      
    ]
  }
]

Now we change the title of a thing:

POST /v1/thing/delete HTTP/1.1
Host: api.thinkery.me
Authorization: access-token=the-token-you-received
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 14

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

{
  "deleted_thing": "thing-id-1"
}

Now the user's thinkery is empty:

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