Use kimono APIs directly from Google spreadsheets

We’ve seen you build impressive analyses with data from kimono. To make analyzing your data even easier, we’ve built an add-on that lets you import data from your kimono APIs directly into google spreadsheets.

Use kimono with google spreadsheets to:

  • Create spreadsheets that update when data changes
  • Investigate massive datasets using crawling APIs
  • Dig through historic time series data for insights
  • Collaborate with others to aggregate and analyze multiple, up-to-date data sets

What story does your data tell? We’ve seen correlations between bitcoin and other market indicators, comparative analytics of popular growth hacker articles, an in-depth investigation into the highs and lows of Nicholas Cage’s movie career, and a test to see if Malcolm Gladwell’s theory on athlete birth dates applies to football player birth dates and much more.

We’re excited to see what you will build with kimono!

    Oh, now that is nice. I’m going to have a play.. right now 🙂
    Great work!

    Will you be creating an Excel plugin too?

    Great stuff, love it! The only thing I still haven’t figured out is how to retrieve the historical data stream in GDoc, could you please help me?

  3. Almost perfect 🙂 Is there any way to automate the update at the same frequency as the API scrapes the target web page? I couldn’t figure this one out. Right now I can only update the sheet content with fresh data if I do the multiple click dance on add-ons, update, etc, manually. What’s more, the API won’t be active (scheduled), if no web hook url is given. But as far as I know, at the moment there isn’t any way that Google Spreadsheets could be updated via web hook.
    Could you help me with these?
