Insert the fields into a web site

Will there ever be a way to insert thingspeak data into an external web without the white box?
It would be nice if you could just insert the value of that field and be able to increase the font size, color...

I'm not sure what you mean by "...without the white box". See: https://www.mathworks.com/help/thingspeak/createchart.html
It has information on how to adjust the background color, etc. when you embed the chart on your site.

I see what you're after.
For a custom dashboard on your website, you will need to code your own widget that reads the value from api.thingspeak.com and visualizes it on your website in the way you want it. There are many charting libraries, such as Highcharts or Google charts, that you can use to build your dashboard. It does require some Javascript and HTML experience, though.

If you just want the field value from a channel field, you can use the Read Data API call to get the data and embed it in your site.
Have a look at this post for an example of a function to call the API. If you wanted to get the valeu form the cheerlights channel to embed, you could use this URL in the function:

ok, I've got it, but now how can I make it auto-update or increase the font size?
