I am looking for a way to have someone search on there site and have data pulled from my database. Is this possible on bubble and how could i go about doing it if so. The general gist is that someone will search on their site for an address, for example via a unique code, and the address linked to that will be inputted into the specific filed/fields on the site.
Thanks to bubble i have been able to create things online i would never of been able to before. I would just like to say how great this website is.
A walk through using a test tool would be very much appreciated.
Unfortunately the idea i have revolves around the data been displayed on other peoples sites. Essentially like the postcode input system used on online checkouts in the UK ( you input the shorter postcode and it pulls the full address.)
Sorry i digress, as i say a walk through would really help.
The tool I am using here is POSTMAN, and it is well worth using that or something similar to test out APIs before you try to implement.
There are a lot of technical details in the Reference.
And I would imagine if someone was coding a call to the API they would find this useful. It is very much from the technical standpoint and not a noddy guide.
I found this very useful.
It has taken a while to get my head round APIs and they are still (IMHO) made overly complex (hence Zapier and Blockspring). It has only through playing via POSTMAN and Zapier that I have made any progress.
So… yes, you could do a search on your Bubble Data, using the API, from somewhere else. How you code that up in whatever language the other site is written in … I have no idea, and don’t want to know
