Shorten URLs using scripts?

Hi There,
It seems that there is no way to call directly an external API to a record on Airtable.
My goal is to be able to shorten URLs (using Bit.ly API) in my database.
I was wondering if there is a way that scripts might be able to help?

Here is Bit.ly API reference : https://dev.bitly.com/api-reference

I appreciate any help on this subject.
Thanks

Yes, you can call APIs by writing a custom script with JavaScript (and it can even be automatically triggered with Airtable’s automations).

Or, if you don’t want to dive into JavaScript, you can also easily automate this with an automation platform like Integromat, which is a no-code platform.

Thanks so much for your input.
I’m trying to stay inside Airtable as much as possible (thanks to the new button and automations features) and to be less dependent on third party integration (zapier, Integromat, etc…) unless absolutely necessary.

I don’t know how to write a script though, If anyone is interested to provide the script for the community that would be awesome :- :slightly_smiling_face:

Cheers
