you have to use qs library and maintain populated data, since that is your performance

Can you give me an example on how to do with qs?

The object i should use to get all the populate in 1 level deep and then tags which 2 level deep

Yeah, I know, but I don’t know how to type the query to do that

Not even the traditional populate=* or even populate=image
