Thanks for your correction, I'm going to add it soon.

I've seen that you've included the field parameter to limit the fields 
that onionoo returns.
Do you think it would be better to use the field parameter and show a 
limited amount of data or try to get everything and only display the 
fields that have a value?

Btw I had an idea to create a small js snippet that allows users to show 
data of an relay or bridge. It would use the onionoo api to send a 
request with a given fingerprint and renders the result in a small piece 
of html. This way someone won't need to link to a specified globe/atlas 
page and can directly show visitors information about an relay/bridge.
I don't know if it would be useful for anyone. What's your opinion on that?
