At "https://github.com/pyeve/eve/blob/master/docs/features.rst#projections"
the following curl request is giving error because of the special symbols it has in curl request. It doesn't seem to be working with my curl tool.

○ → curl -i http://eve-demo.herokuapp.com/people?projection={"lastname": 1, "born": 1}
curl: (3) [globbing] unmatched brace in column 49
curl: (6) Could not resolve host: 1,
curl: (6) Could not resolve host: born
curl: (3) [globbing] unmatched close brace/bracket in column 2
○ → curl -V

The special symbols seem to be replaced by standard clients like insomnia,postman,browsers.
I understand this has more association to curl tool itself, but since I found it being used in documentation for Eve & examples given so raising issue here.
Updating the documentation or specifying curl version & platform on which the commands worked(when written) can also help users while trying out with Eve.
Kindly let me know if I missed any part.

It seems to be working with the -G & --data-urlencode params in curl.

curl -G -v "http://127.0.0.1:5000/people" --data-urlencode 'projection={"lastname":0}'

Example working:

○ → curl -G -v "http://eve-demo.herokuapp.com/people" --data-urlencode 'projection={"lastname":0}'
