@Imran31 I chose to use author/corpus/title names, and not id numbers, intentionally. I believe an API should be self-explanatory, and this helps

Hey @Imran31, I agree with @kylepjohnson here--I like the way you're thinking, but unless we specifically need to move to id number because we're having naming conflicts, I'm still uncertain of what value moving to id numbers would add other than making shorter URLs and moving to id numbers would require the additional overhead of maintaining the id lookup table.
Also, it appears that we no longer need the /api directory in the cltk_api repository because the only database will be on the Meteor cltk_frontend application.

Will remove the /api directory now.
