Hi there, I have a use case I want to test with airtable. I would like to update some .cjs files that are located on github using airtable data to update the values of certain variables.

So for example, the .cjs file might have 5 variables in, and i want to send the value of these from airtable to github and update the file. the values will have been gathered from various stakeholder using airtable forms and views embebed into confluence docs.

is this possible using the airatable API?

(2) Write your own custom API calls using datafetcher.com
or
(3) Do this in a no-code/low-code way by using an integration tool like Make.com that offers comprehensive support for both GitHub and Airtable:
