JCI and casino.chompcasino.com

Challenge: Load https://casino.chompcasino.com/content/chomp-casino/json/2.1/manifest_multicurrency.json and display those game-items containing a defined title.

Solution: Create a new JCI-template with the following settings.
URL: https://casino.chompcasino.com/content/chomp-casino/json/2.1/manifest_multicurrency.json
urlparam4twig : t

Twig code in template:

{% set t = 'Mont' %}
{% if urlparam.t %}
{% set t = urlparam.t %}
{% endif %}
term: {{t}}<br>
{% for g in games if g.title matches '/'~t~'/i'  %}
title: {{g.title}}<br>
{% for i in g.images %}
{{i.url}}
{% endfor %}
<hr>
{% endfor %}

Create new page with this Shortcode: [jsoncontentimporterpro id=NUMBER_OF_JCI_TEMPLATE]

In Action:

Try also this: http://api.json-content-importer.com/jci-and-casino-chompcasino-com/?t=romance

JCI and TablePress

The Plugin “TablePress” and the PRO version of the JSON Content Importer can work together in this way:

First: Create a new TablePress-Table with e. g. two columns and two rows. Fill the cells with some dummy text. This gives you a shortcode [table id=NUMBER_OF_TABLEPRESS_TABLE].

Second: Create a new JCI-Plugin Template with e. g. some JSON data. The Twig-Code is

name: {{_context.0.name}}
[table “NUMBER_OF_TABLEPRESS_TABLE” not found /]

Third: Create a new WordPress-Page/Post with
[jsoncontentimporterpro id=NUMBER_OF_JCI_TEMPLATE]

Preview this page: You should see some “name”-Data and a Table.

Then change the content of a Table-Cell and insert {{_context.0.name}} there.

Preview the page again: If you see the Twig-Code in the Tablecell go to the JCI-Plugin-Options, Tab Settings and select “first third-party-Shortcodes, 2nd: JSONContentImporter-Shortcode (use this for TablePress, Contact Form 7 etc.)”.

Preview again and you should see the JSON-data in the Table.

If the number of columns or rows is dynamic: Up to my knowleded TablePress has a fixed number of cols and rows. So this is not that flexible.
Maybe Table Sort is an option then.

API waterservices.usgs.gov and “Auto Refresh API Ajax”

Challenge: Display the data from https://waterservices.usgs.gov/nwis/iv/?format=json&sites=01407600&parameterCd=72279&siteStatus=active

Simply displaying data is easy – create a Plugin template with the above URL and this Twigcode (Shortcode: [jsoncontentimporterpro id=NO_OF_TEMPLATE])

Location:  {{value.timeSeries.0.sourceInfo.siteName}}<br>
Date: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.dateTime | date("Y-m-d",   "America/New_York") }} <br>
Time: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.dateTime | date("H:i",  "America/New_York") }}<br>
Water Level: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.value}}

In Action:

Location: Shrewsbury River at Sea Bright, NJ
Date: 2019-09-21
Time: 17:18
Water Level: 0.64

Display this data with the “Auto Refresh API Ajax” Plugin- Way 1:

  • Install the Plugin
  • Create a HTML-Div like <div id=”araatest”>load data</div>
  • Go to the “Auto Refresh AA” menu and insert this:
  • URL: See above
  • What: value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.value
  • Where: div[id=”araatest”]

Display this data with the “Auto Refresh API Ajax” Plugin- Way 2:

Create a new JSON-Feed by adding a new plugin-template:
URL: https://waterservices.usgs.gov/nwis/iv/?format=json&sites=01407600&parameterCd=72279&siteStatus=active

{"data": "Location:  {{value.timeSeries.0.sourceInfo.siteName}}, Date: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.dateTime | date("Y-m-d",   "America/New_York") }}, Time: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.dateTime | date("H:i",  "America/New_York") }},Water Level: {{value.timeSeries.0.values.0.value.0.value}}"}

Put [jsoncontentimporterpro id=NO_OF_TEMPLATE] on a new page. This page should be something like this:
http://api.json-content-importer.com/json-waterservices-usgs-gov/
Adding “?show=oc” removes the template and gives pure JSON:
http://api.json-content-importer.com/json-waterservices-usgs-gov/?show=oc http://api.json-content-importer.com/json-waterservices-usgs-gov/?show=oc
This JSON we use in “Auto Refresh API Ajax”

Challenge:
How to get access to the data in

Solution:
For that create a new Plugin-Template with these data
URL: see above
Twig-Template:

Shownotes: Generate Custom Post Types for meetup.com API

Here you find the Code for Copypasting to the Video created to show how the JCI-plugin can generate Custom Post Types out of JSON.

6. WordPress.org Plugin Repository: Cron-Plugins
https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/cron/

API: santannaenergyservices.com

A Job for the PRO plugin is displaying and selecting data from the santannaenergyservices.com API.

Step 1 is creating a plugin-template with this twig-template (instead of concatenating the output you might push it directly)

{% set txt = "" %}
{% for m in model %}
{% set txt = txt ~ "<br>productId: " ~ m.productId%}
{% for r in m.rateScheduleList %}
{% set txt = txt ~ "<br>rateScheduleId: " ~ r.rateScheduleId%}
{% for rsl in r.rateSegmentList if  (rsl.rateSegmentTerm matches '/18 Months/i' ) %}
{% set txt = txt ~ "<br>rateSegmentId: " ~ rsl.rateSegmentId %}
{% for rsdl in rsl.rateSegmentDetailList%}
{% set txt = txt ~ "<br>segmentDetailId: " ~ rsdl.segmentDetailId ~ ", " ~ rsdl.chargeType %}
{% endfor %}
{% endfor %}
{% endfor %}
{% set txt = txt ~ "<hr>" %}
{% endfor %}
{{txt}}

URL:

https://santannaenergyservices.com/productSearch.php?utilityCode=COMILE&stateCode=IL&customerTypeCode=R&serviceTypeCode=E&salesChannelCode=WEB&contractSourceCode=MM

Save the plugin-template and remember the number of the template.
Add this shortcode to an page:

[jsoncontentimporterpro id=NUMBER_OF_TEMPLATE]

This should show you that:


productId: 74
rateScheduleId: 306
rateSegmentId: 306
segmentDetailId: 532, Electric Charges
segmentDetailId: 533, Service Account Charge

productId: 58
rateScheduleId: 164
rateScheduleId: 165
rateScheduleId: 166
rateScheduleId: 167
rateScheduleId: 168
rateScheduleId: 169
rateScheduleId: 170

Free Plugin with JSON-example

One user asked for hints on using a JSON like this. The solution is quite simple:

Install the free JSON Content Importer Plugin and use this Shortcode:

[jsoncontentimporter url=http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/json/blog/blockchain_2.json basenode=consumer_reviews_api]{subloop:params:-1}
params: {params.username}
{/subloop:params}<hr>
{subloop:trader:-1}
trader: {trader.company_name}
{/subloop:trader}<hr>
{subloop-array:reviews:-1}
review: {reviews.comments}<br>
{/subloop-array:reviews}[/jsoncontentimporter]
