I have a working Bokeh server running a nice dashboard on an AWS EC2 instance. Everything is working fine, the UI is slick and highly responsive. However, an end user of the dashboard threw me a curveball and asked me to add basic API support, i.e. optionally supply a subset of our data in plain JSON format.
So by default the dashboard will function as normal but if the user provides some URL parameter on session start then I want override the standard bokeh server response template and simply return some data in JSON format for ingestion by some other consumer.
I would rather not implement a whole new listener/Tornado service for this if I can avoid it.
TLDR - Is it possible to override the standard Bokeh server response template and return plain text JSON instead?
