πŸ”— Build an App Based on API Data with Coupler.io

Background

I recently found a new API I wanted to play around with. I wanted to figure out the easiest way to integrate the data in a Glide app. I know APIs and more Data Sources are in the pipeline for Glide, but until then, Coupler.io is a great option.


Intro to Coupler.io

Coupler allows you to pull external data into a Google Sheet. Since Glide allows you to build apps from Google Sheets, you can now build an app from these external sources with Coupler.

Yup, a client of mine uses coupler to build the spreadsheet directly from Airtable. Nothing is written to the Google Sheet directly.

Glide β†’ Webhooks β†’ Airtable --(coupler)–> google Sheets β†’ Glide β†’ etc.

Wao!!

How can he show the incoming data from Airtable in Glide without writing it in GS?

I’d pay to see that :upside_down_face: :woozy_face:

Let me rephrase…nothing is written to Google Sheets from Glide :wink:
