Ability to make API calls out of Wordpress as well as executing SQL?

by Mike Marks   Last Updated November 08, 2018 22:08 PM

I'm pretty new to Wordpress, so I'm risking some downvotes here... but, I'm curious, are there any recommended plug-ins that have the ability to make REST API calls? I have access to a third party API, and I need to be able to execute REST calls to that API. For simplicity's sake, consider this use case: executing an HTTPGET call to the API to retrieve content to display on the page.

Additionally, are there any plug-ins capable of executing SQL against a non-Wordpress database? Similar use case as above - I need to be able to execute SQL to populate a database hosted by GoDaddy from the data retrieved from the API call above.
