We've created a new Add-on template: Importing Data to Sheets.

This template shows how you can build a Sheets add-on that pulls data from third-party sources (such as an API) into Google Sheets. It provides a framework and basic UI so that you can drop in code specific to your data source and get it running quickly. It also shows how you can set up triggers to automatically import data over time.

If you've ever need to pull data into Sheets, give it a look!

Happy coding!

This Add-on will generate a sankey diagram preview as you type, and also generates the SVG code for a full sized version that you can copy into your own web page. 

It's not on the Add-on store yet, but there's a link here for anyone who wants to help test this preview version.
