Create a base64 url from a file uri(url?)

I am testing out interacting with a file conversion api. I return the completed file conversions as urls. I want to do some magic that pulls in the data from the urls and then converts it into a base64 url so that I can do other things with it. I am having great difficulty figuring out how to get the data at the end of the urls into retool. It seems I can place it into an image component or I can open the urls and the file will download but I can't get it into retool as a variable or something.

Hi @shawncrocker

If you create a RestQuery that calls a get request for the url, you should get a base64 response:

Haha! That's incredible! As if it's that simple. Thanks @Tess
