What to do when the HTTP request string is too long

I need a shorter HTTP request string due to sending device size limitations.
Can any of the following tokens be abbreviated? or ?

No, they can’t. But is it a coincidence that the subject of your post is exactly the same as a section in the Luup Requests Wiki?


The answer pointed to there (in 2012!) is, on the new forum:

The answer is, essentially, to code the request you need, perhaps parametrised, on Vera, either as a scene or in Lua Startup, and trigger it with a request which is handled by your code there. Luup makes it particularly easy to do this… one of the few things it really does well!

okay thanks for the post mcdvoice
