#12 closed defect (fixed)

API is not really RESTish - response status codes and bodies

For example, "create collection" endpoint returns status code 200 with text "OK" in the body.

Ideally API would return 201 (created) with an empty response body and a 'Location' header would contain a URL to the newly created resource (e.g.<username>/collections/<collection-name>).

Another acceptable thing would be returning 201 and body would contain a JSON representation of the newly created container, e.g.:

{"name": "my_container", "date_created": 1111111}

Returning mixed content (some times plain text and some times JSON) is bad.
