Adding a chart linked to external DB

I’m exploring options to build my blog, and I had a question before I decide to go with Ghost. Can I create a page that has a chart with a user form and update button? A member of my site would type a stock ticker into the user form, click a button, and data would be returned from an external database I have on AWS which would populate the chart. I can’t find any tutorials or sources that show examples of this, so I wanted to double check if it’s possible.

Yep! You’ll want to figure out how to get the page to work without Ghost first, and then you can use an HTML card and/or code injection to integrate that code with Ghost.

If you’re hosting on a separate domain, be careful with CORS :slight_smile:

Thanks! I’ll probably be using Ghost Pro for my content.
