If we publish our Services/APIs as Thrift today you can't make requests using simple Human
Readable JSON. This means publishing our APIs to third party users means they have to

1. Know how to use Thrift
2. Have all the Thrift definition files or the generated code

Or we have to build Libraries for each of the platforms we want to support.

This is not always possible.

I propose we do something like this:

{code}
service AuthenticationService {
  LoginResult login(1: string email, 2: string password) throws(1: SystemException err)
}
{code}

Request Format:
{code}
{
  "method": "METHOD_NAME",
  "arguments": { ... }
}

{
  "method": "login",
  "arguments": {
    "email": "devansh@wi.co",
    "password": "password"
  }
}
{code}

RESULT:
{code}
{
  "method": "login",
  "result": {
    "success": {
      "authToken": "some_auth_token",
      "currentUser": {
        "id": "6a6c982b-62f9-46d2-aff9-bd3a1cdf43f9",
        "email": "user1@wi.co",
        "name": "user1",
        "validatedAt": 0
      }
    }
  }
}
{code}
