Hi, I dont have any developer skills.

I need to use Ruby or Php (or maybe other ways?) to be able to extract automatically data from my database online, using API call : Podio (see here: https://developers.podio.com/clients/ruby). I know that Podio is working with globiflow which make the works for money for non skilled persons like me. But I want to learn how to do it.

The only thing is that I dont know anything about it and I have questions such as:

  • how to install the app to create a ruby program?
  • once the ruby program API is done to extract data from Podio, how can I save that program somewhere (and where?)
  • how to operate automatically that program once a day to retrieve data into excel file
  • so that my dashboard linked to excel is updated automatically

Does it makes sense to someone?

So I dont need to become a ruby (or other ways) expert but just to know the basics to reach my goal.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you
