Any example/doc on calling an API and processing JSON response?

I’m trying to recreate this Glide app in Adalo:

It allows logged-in users to post a URL for TV show, movie, book, place, etc. they’d like to try.

My Glide app makes an API call to and parses out the link title, image, etc. from the response and uses the data to construct a new item for a new user/item post.

Is there a video or some doc that explains how to do this in Adalo?


Are you on the paid plan? You should be able to do this with custom actions.


Not yet. $50/mo feels like a big first jump from free just to test the platform, but looks I’ll have to do it.

If I were you, I would just get like dummy data (5 example records) and just test your app idea. If you see that Adalo is a good choice, go ahead and pay for the paid plan!

And of course, you have the forum to ask questions, get answers, and talk about anything!


Thanks. Part of the evaluation is getting the API call to work. But I’ll see how far I can get on the free plan.

If you want DM me the API base url and all the details and I’ll send over a cloneable kit with the API working.


When you are new to Adalo then Adalo offers a 14 days trial that you can start and use Custom actions for a trial to see how it works. But only 14 days :slightly_smiling_face:

Then after 14 days,

What happens after 14 days?

Don’t worry! You’ll still be able to keep building your app and all of your integrations will be saved, they’ll just be paused until you upgrade your account.

Thank you
