Dynamically changing the REST Endpoint URL

I have set up a twitter input and now I am attempting to set up an input from Fitbit. The Fitbit API calls for using the URL to specify the necessary parameters. For example, to get activities for a specific date I would have to use a URL with a date in it. I see the feature listed in the documentation so I would like a hint where I should start looking to find a solution. Thanks.

The latest release of the REST API Modular Input , v1.3.4 , has support for dynamic token substitution in the Endpoint URL.

So for example , with the Fitbit URL :

http://api.fitbit.com/1/user/228TQ4/activities/date/2010-02-25.json

You could enter this in your REST API Modular Input as :

http://api.fitbit.com/1/user/228TQ4/activities/date/$datetoday$.json

Give me a few hours , I'll need to add some functionality in the Mod Input to support this style of request format
