Automating API datasets

Hello!
I have found an API that is very useful for my project (yahoo!). As I have zero knowledge in coding, once I run the request, download the document and look up info manually and then make it presentable. This, obviously, consumes an enormous amount of time.
Is there a way to automate this activity: Export - lookup - clean up - present?
I guess the question is more: is there a chance for a person who does not know programming to automate this or not? Thank you
Yulia

  • Hello Yulia,

    Great to hear that you found an API that is useful to you 😀 Your question depends a bit on which API you are using and what parameters you are looking for. Typically an API response is supposed to be processed further into a project and for that you need at least some coding skills.

    Which API are you using?

    Kind regards

  • Hi Sofie,
    thank you so much for your response!
    I am using the GTFS Regional Realtime to fetch status alerts, which I then manually check for the elevator status. Of course, it takes a lot of time to find all the broken elevators and information related to them. So I was wondering if there is a way to work smarter.

    Thank you!

  • Hi again Yulia,

    Ok I see, unfortunatly I am not aware of any tool that would help you in this case. If it would have been Resrobot for example there is a nice website where you can find information in a more user friendly way. But as I mentioned before, API:s are mainly directed towards developers so they can use the results in ways that suits their projects best and for that you need at least a few lines of coding.

    Thank you!
