Can I use MetaBase without creating a database (Directly get data from another app through a JSON API)

We like to use the nicely generated charts from MetaBase, but instead of synchronizing a database, can we just use the data directly from another web application? The application I tried to get data from has nice JSON APIs.
If it can, how to setup in MetaBase?

Hi I’m new to Metabase but I need to use APIs instead of DataBase, did this initiative of the driver worked. I followed your link and created a http-driver.jar but Metabase is NOT recognizing it…

@GeorgeM That test driver is more than 2 years old and will not work with newer versions of Metabase.
