PRO: Calc with data from 2 JSON-URLs by merging the JSON-feeds

Challenge:
You have two JSON feeds you want to merge and calc with the JSON-values.
Example-Solution:
Examle JSON-Feeds:
http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/json/n1.json and
http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/json/n2.json
Create a new JCI-Template and use one JSON-feed-URL as “URL of Template”
http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/json/n1.json

twig:

{% set secondjsonurl = "http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/json/n2.json" %}
{% set sc = "Fetching URL failed: A valid URL was not provided." %}
{% set json2feed = (sc | doshortcode ) %}
{% set json2feedk = (json2feed| json_decode ) %}
no2 from the 1st JSON-feed: {{ no2 }}
this is the data from the 2nd JSON-feed: {{json2feedk | json_encode}}
now calc no1 * no2: {{ json2feedk.no1 * no2 }}

Explanation:
  • “sc” is a string containing a JCI-shortcode for retrieving the 2nd JSON-URL. This Shortcode could also one with just [jsoncontentimporterpro id=...] for using another JCI-Template (in case the request is more complex).
  • The “sc”-shortcode gives back {{_context | json_encode}}: This means the whole JSON is returned as pure string. Hence json2feed=(sc|doshortcode) executes the shortcode and sets json2feed as a JSON-string
  • json2feedk=(json2feed|json_decode) converts the JSON-string to an JSON-array, which can be used just like the root-JSON-array of the 1st JSON-feed: json2feedk.no1 * no2

Importaint settings:
  • The setting of “Usage of Shortcodes (JCI or other) in the JCI-twig-Template” (see JCI-Options, Tab “Shortcode-Settings”) must be on the default value. Otherwise the internal Shortcode might be executed at the wrong place
  • At the same tab: “Nested JCI-Shortcodes: Use child-settings in parent-shortcode?” should be on ” Separate parent- and child-settings”, esp. when you use multiple jsoncontentimporterpro-shortcodes

In action:
no2 from the 1st JSON-feed: 5
this is the data from the 2nd JSON-feed: {"no1":"8","unused":5433}
now calc no1 * no2: 40
