Connectinig a Smiirl counter to a Caspio datapage

Recommended Posts



Not sure if this is in the correct discussion, but has anyone connected a Smiirl counter (https://www.smiirl.com/) to a caspio datapage output/value yet? I understand the Smiirl counter connects based on JS /Node:

const express = require('express');
const app = express();

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
res.json({number: 12345})


or in PHP:

header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');
header('Content-Type: application/json');

echo json_encode(array('number' => intval(date('Hi'))));


or in Phyton:

import http.server
import socketserver
import json
from http import HTTPStatus

class Handler(http.server.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler):
    def do_GET(self):
        data = {
            "number": 54321
        self.send_header('Content-type', 'application/json')
        self.wfile.write(bytes(json.dumps(data), "utf-8"))

httpd = socketserver.TCPServer(('', 80), Handler)

Use case

We are using Caspio to monitor an approval/voting process, it would be a nice gimmick to hand the customer a Smiirl counter before the voting process starts so they can track it's progress live. The # of votes in favour would need to be posted by Caspio and picked up by the Smiirl counter.




Looking forward to your ideas.
