# API Data Ingestor

### @benhaynes – :+1: (1 year ago)

An extension that provides an easy way to dynamically pull in external data (primarily through third-party APIs) with an intuitive GUI. Each ingestion point would have the following options:

  • Title
  • Frequency (30s, 2h, 1d, etc)
  • Date column
  • API endpoint
  • Data Mapping (response to column)

Example

You could have Directus pull in GitHub stars from a public repo every day (stored in the database).
