  • apitable

    πŸš€πŸŽ‰πŸ“š APITable, an API-oriented low-code platform for building collaborative apps and better than all other Airtable open-source alternatives.

  • (A bit sad with the dubious marketing; hopefully they can get around to remove it or finish it with real testimonials as it obviously generates a negative reaction that completely overshadows the actual fairly impressive product.)

    Did anyone get the "Gitpod Online Demo" to work?

    https://gitpod.io/#https://github.com/apitable/apitable

    Takes well over 2 minutes to start up and then asks for a username/password which is written under installation: admin@apitable.com / Apitable2022

    As far as I can see it is a somewhat buggy but interesting and comprehensive product. Instead of relying on Gitpod for demo, I would buy some dedicated, faster hosting and make a demo that didn't require a login.
