I'm sure Pete will open it up. That's part of the effort here. Ideally, we'd find a way to merge this with John's simple app that has the Sleep override and with Alistair's Apple Watch bits and simply have Nighscout for iOS.
entries is more for single values, with many of the apps people are looking at building we need a snapshot of the current state
with all the information
and lots more is being added with the plugins and notifications that are getting added to dev
also thinking that long polling would be a great fit here, so instead of trying to time the polling you'd make the request, the server would wait up to a minute for new data, if there is new data you'd get if not, you'd make the next request
