Inspired by what would seem like a very simple, innocent question in another “Need Help” post, I recorded this completely unrehearsed and talky-but-possibly-interesting hour-plus video that gives you a glimpse into how I think about Bubble and how I develop new ideas.
Starting with: “Can I get an image from another page’s meta images URL and put it in a repeating group without making the user have to upload it?” (short answer: yes), I go all over the place and describe some completely basic junk (displaying an image URL in an image element), some moderately advanced stuff (glossing over how to build a microservice / your own API), and on to using the impossibly complicated Amazon Product Advertising Search API with Bubble.
And it’s free. All you have to lose is your time and your mind. Come bubble along with me!
So here’s an hour and 12 minutes or so of me rambling on about interesting things that I did in response to this question. Showing an image URL in an image element, Funny cat pictures, weird Amazon products, building a simple meta data scraper with nodejs, the metascraper NPM library and webtask.io, tips about repeating groups, doing interesting stuff completely in the page and… wait for it… a very long and talky and possibly COMPLETELY confusing explanation of how to configure the NOTORIOUSLY difficult Amazon Product Advertising Search API (https://webservices.amazon.com/scratchpad/index.html)!
