REST API support for gzip responses

Does the current REST API support gzip in the response of a request?

I’ve added the HTTP header, Accept-Encoding: gzip, but the response so far isn’t gzip encoded.

It appears that the Backendless API for Android supports gzip.

Hi Roy,

Gzip is not enabled for responses with Content-Type:application/json



I’m hoping that this will be a future enhancement so that the response data is obtained quicker, etc.

As far as I know, the only time the content-type isn’t application/json is on a File download?

Are there any other places this could occurr?
