I'm trying to make my Salesforce application as dynamic as possible. One of the things I'd like to do is pull the meta-data and data that make up the Salesforce home page. Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about it?

Example of our current Salesforce Homepage enter image description here

Using REST API 31.0

As far as I know there is not access Metadata API via REST.

However, you could use the Metadata API via SOAP. There you could retrieve three elements that define your Home:

Finally, you could access via REST API to get the date your are exposing in the Home, typically:

  • Tasks
  • Events

For instance:

curl https://na1.salesforce.com/services/data/v30.0/sobjects/Event/ -H "Authorization: Bearer token"

Good Luck
