Getting the time from a remote source


  • Posts: 2262
I'm aware of the Date Extension and I'm currently tinkering with it. I assume that it gets the device time, and so it could be cheated?

Is there a way to get the time from somewhere else, such as the world clock?

Might help if ood on the coding side. Gives an API to pull data from.

Nice find.  Google has an api also.  Justin taught me how to parse json data to attributes.  I can help out if needed.  Lemme know. :)

Thanks guys. I knew about the first one, but I hadn't thought about Google to be honest. That looks promising. - this shows tells you more about it and shows an example json response. - this explains how to interpret the data. That bit seems pretty straight forward.
