External database access

I was wondering if anyone has explored a new feature of enabling access to external databases.  I can see this being used for birthday lists, recurring assignments.  The person using it would have to be technically minded or at least willing to dig into that realm to use it.  


  • Can you explain what you mean by "external databases"? Are these databases you've already set up? Are they in MySQL or PostgreSQL? How do you want to use them within OpenLP?

    (In software engineering we would ask, "what is your use-case?")
  • I have birthdays and other information stored in a MySQL database and have the current and next months birthdays displayed in a loop in our announcements slides.  If I could pull from the query of the database that would simplify that part of the setup.
