Generate a URL for a picture

Hello Glide Community,

I am making a travel diary application where user uploads the list of countries and cities they have traveled to. Is there any way I can generate a picture of that country’s flag automatically when they input the name of that country? Through a generate URL column or Template column maybe?

Use a template column to craft this url

This is too much to ask, but can you please get me a similar APIs for:

  1. Movies or TV shows
  2. Books
  3. Food items maybe? :blush:

Ha! That’s trickier and probably pricier (those APIs probably aren’t free). Perhaps start with something like

Google books API is freemium…perhaps IMDb has an API as well.

Thank you so much!! I am an amateur in using APIs but will look up some tutorials for using them. Thanks

Just to add to great responses by Bob, if you’re using a premium API, make sure you check for caching with those. If responses are not cached, you risk running out of calls very soon.


Good call on caching. I’ve run Into this issue more times than I’d like to admit.
