I’m trying to wire-up a data feed, but I’m failing miserably, wondering
if an expert can figure this out.
I want to get semi-real-time data from a Covid19 data feed, and
import it into Google Sheets, using the Import functionality in Google Sheets.
Then I will display the data in some combination of data and graphics, using
Live Data or Gsheet stacks, and one of the charting stacks.
Here is a list of the Import functions in Google sheets.
Here is the Feed Data Page. about-corona.net/documentation
and the feed corona-api.com/countries
You don’t say what you have done thus far to try to achieve this yourself? Anything?
In your google sheets, install an add-on called ‘Import-Json’. Its in beta but stable. Go through the process of installing it and making sure its there in your add-ons.
Then select A1 and type or paste into the function bar:
Wait a few moments and you should get the data imported:
Might need to clean things up a bit from the import, or improve the api query, but that should get you a lot closer.
Thank You Indridcold.
I tried 3 of the IMPORT XML, DATA and FEED functions, in every confirguration I could hack my through, got some errors, could not figure it out.
However, now I have now loaded a google add-on called API connector? and it was super easy to bring it all in at once.
Thanks for your help.
