External Database Based Actions

Description

It provides an alternative way of getting data from an external database:
* Google Sheets
* SQLite
* MySQL
* Progresql

A SQL query can be configured to get data from these databases and be used as method for authentication or for populate post or pages.

The plugin is modular, so, new actions for the data gathered can be added to the plugin with minimal programming. You can contact me at cmorillas1@gmail.com
