Remote Snippets

Description

Display live data coming from a JSON API or webservice on your WordPress website

Using this plugin you can fetch data in JSON or CSV format from an external source.

You can then transform it and display it on your WordPress website using a shortcode.

  • Enter the URL of the API or data source and the plugin will retrieve it for you.
  • Configurable cache so you do not experience delays or overload the API endpoint.
  • Define templates in the Twig template language to transform the raw data to a nice format.
