Enthused by my experience of Retool of late (developing an internal app) - I wanted to have a shot at a personal project. But, I am not a developer........ so I need a little steer in the right direction.
- I am on an hourly electricity tariff at home. And I have an electric car.
- I've found a way to access the car via an API, and I have found the hourly tariff rates in an Energy API.
- I wanted to create a little app that will only charge the car when hourly tarrifs are below certain amount.
I've got as far as getting my API pulling the correct data (using GET - to get the tariff rates) - but, it just comes back as a raw xml file. I'm sure this is normal and standard - but, as mentioned, I'm not really a developer - so I wanted to ask......where should I be looking to get some guidance on how to then format this into a useable set /table of data? What should I search for?
As always, appreciate any guidance - many thanks!
