TEXT

 
Text data output is the preferred and fastest way to send data to the widgets when you are sending data from private or custom data sources using HTTP Get or HTTP Post .
 
When you send data as TEXT, there is no processing done and it is fed straight to the widget. So whatever format you have your widget's data prototyped will be the expected output.
 
Here are the formats for some important widgets (in prototype mode)
