I am trying to display some TV schedule information from a thirdparty json api. I need to know what is the best way to do this. I have tried various module wsclient module,json query plugin, wsclient view integration. But none of them worked and overkill.

I can write a module to do this, but I need some information. One option I was thinking off was making a new data source available to the Views module. What hooks need to implemented for this?

  • Are you trying to pull in the data and save it to drupal or just pull and display it? Commented Aug 14, 2014 at 21:19
  • Just pull in and display. saving wouldnt make sense as it change very often.

  • I would suggest just creating a custom module and a custom page using hook_menu. ANd just make your call during the page load. Commented Aug 16, 2014 at 20:24

Check Views JSON Query.

JSON Query is a Views 3 plugin that adds native JSON query generation. It allows you to parse JSON using Views' graphical query builder. It works much like Views XML Backend but with JSON.
