New ALIAS (not a column in the database) datatype UIs that pull data asynchronously from a remote source.

Options:

  • Remote Target URL with templating for this table's items: domain.com/api/1/activity/[category]
    • [category] references the data of another column in this table
  • Response Type: Text, Image, etc

Could be useful as a proof-of-concept for showing live/ephemeral data that lives elsewhere. Such as:

  • A livestream video thumbnail (Channel ID)
  • Current Weather (Zip/Location)
  • Stock Price (Stock Symbol)
  • User/system status (System ID)
  • IoT Device status (Device ID)
  • Latest external platform message (IRC ID)
