Do any of the existing DND5e character sheets have the ability to import from DND Beyond like the 4e character sheet imports from the old character builder?
I don't think any of the DND5e character sheets have that ability. BUT you can "Export to PDF" the DNDBeyond character, and that will give you a pdf link like this:
And then you can "host" that in a Character Description, with html like this:
<div class='oembed'><a href='https://www.dndbeyond.com/sheet-pdfs/thaen_thromhold_35743119.pdf'></a></div>
In a quick test I just did, it didn't seem that the PDF updates to show any changes made to the DNDBeyond Character after the Export. So you would need to "re-export" the Character and update the link to update it on OP.

D&D Beyond, Hero Lab, and just plain editable PDF sheets are what my group has been using since almost day 1 here. DSTs, honestly, are too clunky. The media Embed makes it pretty easy to use pdfs, as long as they are online eithe ron the site itself or hosted somewhere else (as with D&D Beyond)

Ok, thanks I'll take a look at the PDFs, although I do like the DSTs, I guess DND Beyond doesn't really have way to export to anything a DST could use.
Here's the GitHub project (I don't know anything about it):
So if someone wanted to do the work of creating a DST that could display that data, that's totally feasible.
