Bubble App Connector - Connecting and setting it up?

I am trying to have an app that creates the data and another that just reads the data. I know this is possible but because I don’t understand APIs and how they work.

Some questions I have.

  • How do i connect both of my apps together?
  • Do both apps need to be on a paid plan?
  • How do i display the data on the page.
  • Do both apps need the plugin installed and connected to each other?

I hope atleast some of these questions can be answered, i have been trying to figure this out but it wont seem to work. Not sure if it is cause only app is on a paid plan at the moment.

Hopefully this is enough for you to keep going with your research.

How do i connect both of my apps together?

The Bubble API connector with the Bubble Data API.

Do both apps need to be on a paid plan?

Not required to be on a paid plan, you can enable the Data API (and create custom public API endpoints) and use the free App connector plugin on a free plan.

How do i display the data on the page.

The API Data endpoints become available in the editor - as a new datatype. And custom Action endpoints are available in Actions.

Do both apps need the plugin installed and connected to each other?

You enable the Data API on your “target” app (and get an API token). You install the API connector on your “source” app (and input the API token).

Oauth2 authentication is a whole lot more fiddly and you need to get your head around basic API connectivity between your apps before tackling Oauth2 IMHO :slight_smile:
