Navigating and Processing Data in Xano: Looping, Filtering, and Conditional Logic

In this meeting, Anthony seeks assistance with extracting specific information from different PDF files using an API and manipulating the data in Xano. He shares his screen and explains the different PDFs he is working with, providing examples of the codes he wants to extract. Anthony mentions that he is struggling with looping through a large amount of data and asks for guidance.

Throughout the meeting, the State Changer discusses various approaches to solve the problem. They recommend using Xano's functions and demonstrate how to experiment and debug the code. They walk Anthony through the process of setting up a function, creating variables, and using conditionals and loops to filter the data. They encounter some issues with the code, such as unexpected results and incorrect data paths. They troubleshoot these problems together and suggest possible solutions, such as checking the structure of the JSON data and ensuring the correct data types are used. The State Changer advises Anthony to iterate and test his code incrementally, adding more conditions and filters as needed. They emphasize the importance of clarity and understanding the data in order to optimize performance later on. Towards the end of the meeting, the State Changer briefly addresses another participant's question about multi-part forms, but states that there is limited time to discuss it further. Overall, the meeting focuses on helping Anthony extract specific information from PDFs using an API and manipulate the data in Xano. The State Changer provides guidance, suggests solutions for debugging and optimizing the code, and encourages iterative testing.
