Allow Number Counter to connect to external data for real time (or near real time) refresh

It would be amazing to be able to connect the Number Counter application to an external data soruce to allow the numbers to be refreshed in real time without the need to manually update them in the application every time they change. Something similar to world-o-meters or even what you are doing with your own Coronavirus tracker.

    Great news: dynamic values are available in the Number Counter widgets now! 🎉

    Since this Wishlist portal moved to our forum, you'll find all the details in this post.

    See you there!

    Hi Peter, and thank you for your comment!

    I have to say that we don't build widgets this way, I'm really sorry for the inconvenience :(

    We're happy to collect your ideas here in wishlist and implement them as we go. For now, you're welcome to vote for this feature request: https://wishlist.elfsight.com/ideas/NC-I-4.

    And if you have any other suggestions for this feature, please feel welcome to leave them in the comments :)

    Thank you very much for your interest in our widgets!

    How much would it cost me to have you build the widget? I would like a Go Fund Me progress type number counter: number of people supporting, total capital raised and project goal

    Hello Tony and folks!

    Thanks a lot for adding this request.

    Now when we have more possibilities to work with our wishlist closer than we used to, I'd love to specify a couple of things, so we understand your request better.

    Could you please share how exactly you'd love to perform such a connection, via a link? If so, what a link is supposed to return?

    Thanks a lot!
