Importing content from third-party API

Hey!

Is it possible to make it possible to query external APIs while the author is writing content?

Let’s say the author builds a landingpage for a specific brand and he wants to add a small productfeed. This productfeed should be a content type which queries an external API (in fact our shop backend) and returns a collection of products. And it should be possible to filter those queries (e.g. only get products from a specific brand or of a specific type)?

Thanks!

For those who were also looking for a solution: yes, it is possible. One has to use ui-extensions (see SO-Post).

Indeed, I found it fairly easy to get started. But technically, it’s definitely doable.
