API/JSON directly to a custom list view with images, buttons, and text

This seems to be a hot topic. I wont create a tutorial, but here is a working example. I made this a while back to deal with consuming a news API for a couple of guys I was working with.

It’s super straight forward!

  1. Get your data from the api
  2. bind the first objects data, with your hidden ‘master’ card.
  3. clone that card into a visible column,
  4. repeat the process for the next object returned by the API

Thanks for the demo, @nradjt74jatz. This crashes for me (white screen). Is it working for you?

Maybe i posted an old liink? not sure. it is working for me

here are the blocks just in case

And the Json response

Same result for me.

Not sure what’s going on there. So when I try to live preview this on my computer or phone, I am unable.
