High vs. Low level package APIs

High level API

High level functions do the HTTP request and parse data to a data.frame for ease of downstream use. The high level functions have no underscore on the end of the function name, e.g., zb_name_usages

Low level API

The parsing to data.frame in the high level API does take extra time. The low level API only does the HTTP request, and gives back JSON without doing any more parsing. The low level functions DO have an underscore on the end of the function name, e.g., zb_name_usages_
