Is there any plan for an API to pull metadata? It’s currently very difficult to infer the schema, you have to resort to hacks like reading all records and then trying to infer types and column names from that. It’d be great if you could pull the schema information for a table more easily!

It’d also be awesome if you’d be able to add and change tables from the API, but that’s less pressing to me :slightly_smiling_face:
