Hi, I am not sure how active this forum is. I am just getting started with OctoberCMS.

I am hoping for suggestions from seasoned OctoberCMS users here.

I need to be able to import JSON, XML, CSV data from oAuth2 API's and was wondering if anyone is aware of any OctoberCMS plugins that exist and will allow me to import data into my database from these APIs or is this something that would need to be custom-built?

If the only option available is to build my own solution would this be something I could do using the OctoberCMS Builder plugin?

Thank you in advance to anyone able to point me in the right direction.

I don't think such a plugin exists yet, but you could look at starting with this package might help with the oAuth2 part

And this might help with the import into octobercms part

@mjauvin thank you for your help. I will look into these two options and see if I'm able to make something work. I would really love to find a solution to use with OctoberCMS because I want nothing more than to get away from WordPress. The OctoberCMS community and resources are much smaller than WordPress but as a non-developer, I am hoping to find a way to fit in within this community. OctoberCMS looks to be so much more flexible and customizable than WordPress. I am going to give it my best shot to make this work. Again thank you.

I totally understand, I wouldn't go back to Wordpress myself now that I found October.

Indeed. It's been improving at a steady pace though.

Definitely more flexible. Having PHP programming experience definitely helps, though.
