How to use Programming to extract data from Zoho Creator on the web

Posted 05 July 2019 - 09:09 AM

Hello,

I am looking for advice on how I can use a programming language to interact with Zoho Creator (a cloud software to create custom applications for businesses) to log onto Zoho on the web, and pull and extract certain data which can then be organized into an excel spreadsheet.

Is Python a good tool for this type of challenge? Is this what you call web-scraping? I would appreciate any advice you could give me on how I can go about this or any resources that I can learn from. If nothing else, if you could point me in the general direction of where I can start that would be appreciated.

Regards,
Dan

and pull and extract certain data

What sort of certain data?

Most likely you would want to look at their 'api'.

Basic information related to our business, flow rates of pumps, information on the components inside of certain parts packages, part numbers, serial numbers etc.

Then go the API route I mentioned above.
