Get data from an external website into my bubble app ?!

Hi everyone,

I want to display images from google image web site into my popup which contain a repeating group of image. More precisely, the url of the google image website has to contain the value of the input which is in my popup, as a parameter of the url.

For example :
google image classic url:
https://www.google.fr/imghp?hl=fr
google image url with input’s value as a parameter :
https://www.google.fr/search?hl=fr&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=662&ei=JlbiXIuSN6qXlwTf34K4Bg&q=input’s value

So, my question is : how can I achieve this kind of task ?

Hi,

This is a complicated question you are asking, so here are a few ideas for you to move forward:

  • you can create a repeating group within bubble to display dynamic data (eg URL of images from external websites)
  • you need to get a list of the image files to display in the repeating group. Since your images are from a Google search you need to develop a Bubble external API… so look this up on the Bubble forum or internet and you can learn from videos like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSa1EdG0-O4
  • then you will need to create a Google search API to call to load into your repeating group… Google will allow you to do this via https://developers.google.com/custom-search/docs/overview

Hope this helps
