Troubleshooting API Issues and Simplifying Database Queries in Xano and Bubble Platforms
In this meeting, the State Changers discuss the handling of API and its usage in the development of an application. The discussion takes place primarily around Xano and Bubble platforms.
Key discussion points revolve around getting the Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) owned API to work correctly, refining the process of generating a list of contract addresses from an API response, and returning only those contract addresses that exist in a particular database.
The meeting proceeds with the resolution of an issue with a 'Post Vote' function wherein the function fails when it is required to handle an empty tags value. The problem is identified as Bubble sending an array containing a null, which Xano was interpreting incorrectly. The solution includes a conditional test to verify the presence of null and handling it appropriately. This discussion goes in-depth into the best practices of using conditionals and debug processes, providing useful tips for newly integrated developers, especially those working with Xano and Bubble.
If issues around API usage, trouble with the handling of null values, or conditional handling in Bubble and Xano are relevant, then this meeting summary should be useful.
