This is truly excellent. It makes adding fields to the Rest API easy. However, there's the slight issue that it slows down every. single. page. by 3-5 seconds because it makes a terribly slow SQL query on EVERY admin page. So I use it when I need it. Then I quickly deactivate it.

Extremely simple to use and effective, just plain plug-and-play style. Thank you very much for the amazing app.
