Troubleshooting and Optimizing Data Mapping in Xano
In this meeting, the State Changers discussed the use of Xano to query data tables, specifically focusing on using add-ons and "for each" loops. Participants also addressed issues related to using SQL for efficient data handling and the concept of "joining" tables. They discussed how to streamline the extraction of data from three independent tables into a single table by focusing on problem-solving from a front-end UI/UX perspective, rather than starting from the back-end.
A significant discussion centered around the issue of making multiple API calls for complex applications versus having more specialized endpoints serving specific screens. A key insight from this discussion was the recommendation to build web requests around what specific screens in an app need at any given time. The State Changers also touched on strategies to troubleshoot parsing errors encountered during the querying process and understanding the use of external queries in Xano.
The meeting contains useful insights for anyone using Xano for data handling or building apps requiring efficient extraction and presentation of complex data sets.
