Can gnumeric directly pull data (populate a field or function variable) from api like excel. Using a url (like a websocket wss stream) for data source.
google & duckduck did not find tutorial or manual page for that process. Found only examples and posts asking how to use python to populate gnmumeric fields. Looking for a more direct way, no need for python or intermediary scripting.
someone @ gitlab /GNOME/gnumeric/ suggested before my question was closed :
not aware of a way to pull data from gnumeric but it is possible to push it into gnumeric from an external source thanks to sample_datasource plugin.
You may have a look at : The Gnumeric Manual, version 1.12
I looked and it referred to local plugin folder and https://github.com/GNOME/gnumeric/tree/master/plugins/sample_datasource
Both did not help enough for me to populate a cell with data from an api response or websocket. Something like excel power query to import websocket data to excel.
Is there a more in depth manual reference than above ? any tutorials how to pull/push data into cells directly from api or websocket data stream ? What is the process to pull data from text files into gnumeric cell or calculation.
