Hi!

I'm trying to create a ticker that reads from an JSON api endpoint, that looks somethings like this:

Text 1 • Text 2 • Text 2 is very loooooooooong • Etc ..

This is read from an api that looks similar to this:

[
{ "body": "Text 1" },
{ "body": "Text 2" },
{ "body": "Text 2 is very loooooooooong" },
{ "body": "Etc .." }
]

I almost created it with the GT editor, with "Add" ticker instead of "Replace".
But is there a way to add a separator between the items?

just add a seperator character to your format setting of the datasource in your title(ticker)

That would add it to the last item as well, right? Like this
Text 1 • Text 2 •

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. The list definitely is finite.

What i say is , unless you manipulate your data sending differently to the title ( external app or script) you have basically an infinite list (no indication of end of list to make a decision) and are stuck to the basic addition of a separator or other text before/after each item
with scripts or apps your data manipulation before displaying is infinite :-)
