I have pages for which a part of the data (views count of a video) is available from an external API service. What is the best way to integrate this data in Kirby? My current approach is that with a separate script i would retrieve this API data every 3 hours and add it directly in the .txt files. The problem however is that these direct edits won’t be picked up by kirby, even though i make sure to change the file dates. I feel there must be a smarter way to deal with this but i lack the experience. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
They should be, unless you are using Kirby’s cache and don’t flush the cache when updating your content programmatically.
Thanks, i use zero one theme and it has cache. I have now set up a cron job to delete the cache folder and will see if that fixes it.
I am now deleting the cache folder and this seems to work.
