Updating Images Automatically


Go to solution Solved by bangank36,

Question

Site URL: https://greenlynxservices.it

I need some of the images on my site's pages to update either through code I can run locally on my computer, or through code i can write inside the image blocks on the squarespace editor. I wanna offer my clients statistics on sports, but I can't update images manually since it would take forever, so I'm trying to find a way that would make it easier on my team while keeping the informations on the website as up to date as they can be. Is there a way I can do it?

Yes, I guess I could.

Like the images in this page: https://greenlynxservices.it/leghefree/serie-a . It's a portfolio page, but I'm interested in a general solution that would work with any kind of page. Thanks in advance

So, I'd have to write javascript code in a squarespace block that goes to an online server (or similar) to get the data, right?

The general aproach is update the data on an online service and use javascript chart library (like chart.js) to read and render these bar chart using the data, that way you don't have to manually create the image from data and upload to the site

You may need a script to update the livescore from 3rd stats website, so it will keep the site up to date

I already gather statistics through a program that is on my computer, I transform them, then I have to update them in the website. In any case, there is no 3rd website which provides the processed statistics we need, so I have to process them myself and then publish them on the site.

Can you export the data in online datasource like google spreadsheet?

Yup, so you will only need to take care of the data, the process to create charts is handled by script
