Can you embed a REST API response in Confluence wiki content?

I'm looking for a way to quickly embed some plain text output from a REST API (TeamCity) in a Confluence wiki page. I can't use the html-include macro, as it expects html and throws an error otherwise. The lone plugin that seems relevant hasn't been updated since many Confluence releases ago. I don't want to use the plugin or the TeamCity build status widget. I just need a little data from the server to sprinkle onto the page content I already have. Is there no way to just include the raw output from a URL regardless of its response type?

At a minimum, you can script it - Script Plugin for Confluence. Or you could treat the data returned as csv and use the CSV macro with the url.

I went with the CSV and it worked great Bob, thanks! All I needed was the url attribute with the macro.
