accessing own API/data

Hi,

we've managed to make the example app work. However, we're trying to integrate it with our own api.

We tried the following steps:

- jquery jsonp: jquery doesnt seem to be used within the app

- own js API: how do you include external scripts?

also, im not sure i've found any of this in the documentation, but a sandbox would be come in very handy. Editing the js, zipping it, uploading it and reloading the lotus app is very strenuous.

looking forward to hearing from you

We don't yet have an API for evaluating external scripts. You can use the HTTP Requests API to fetch data (e.g. JSON or XML) from an external API.

Hi Julien

It's been a long time time but I just wanted to update you on this, you might want to check out our tools to help you sandbox and develop your apps without having to upload/reload the .zip everytime: http://developer.zendesk.com/documentation/apps/reference/tools.html

Hope this helps, let me know if not!
