Integrating Quick Base text fields with Word Cloud API

  • 1.  Integrating Quick Base text fields with Word Cloud API

    Hey Everyone, 
    I wanted to grab client feedback notes from text fields in an application, then post the resulting word images on their respective dashboards. An example of a word cloud can be found here: https://www.jasondavies.com/wordcloud/">https://www.jasondavies.com/wordcloud/">https://www.jasondavies.com/wordcloud/

    API information can be found here: https://market.mashape.com/textvis/word-cloud">https://market.mashape.com/textvis/word-cloud">https://market.mashape.com/textvis/word-cloud

    The scenario would be this... a User enters feedback given to them by their customers into 4 text fields contained on their form in Quick Base. Once saved, the goal is to have these words gathered sent via API to Word Cloud where they are gathered and formed, then captured in Quick Base within a new field, which will then be added to a certain report. Very open to a new method if this is not possible 

    Can anyone offer me insight as to the best way to accomplish this task? 

    Thanks!!

    I would use this wordle-like library written in d3:

    You can do this without an external server (ie entirely in Quickbase) and quire frankly most external servers would probably not provide an API interface you can use cross-domain.
