Hi dev and community team!
We were wondering how useful it would be to create a query option on the Receivers. The use case would be on really large datasets, an engineer instead of requesting the whole stream and then doing some filtering on the clients they can prefilter those data on the server. This has obvious benefits as the filtering in the db would be much more efficient than on your client, less data to move around the networks and probably smoother clients all around!
- Do you think this could be something you would use in your day to day work?
At Arup we did create a version of the sender like that on v1 of Speckle. As you can see there was a separate component that could guide the user on what is possible i.e. include specific type of geometry, specific layers, info from those objects etc…
- We also wonder if this should go to the main receivers or on a new “custom” receiver?
Would love yo hear your thoughts.
