    Rowy is an open-source low-code platform for your backend. Airtable-like UI for your database meets cloud functions workflows, all in your browser ⚡️✨ Code in JS/TS, use any NPM, API.

    What scale have you tested the UI at? Do you have any demo / benchmarks for over 1M rows?

    Reading through the infinite scrolling PR [1] it looks like scrolling isn’t virtualized (like Airtable’s) so the browser will start choking when it has too many elements in the DOM.

  • React Data Grid

    Feature-rich and customizable data grid React component

    no, i missed that one when i was searching, but from the homepage and a quick glance through the docs it doesn't seem like it does what i need. what i want is something like react-data-grid [https://github.com/adazzle/react-data-grid] but with a backend component that handles collaborative updates. essentially a stripped down and actively maintained alternative to ethercalc [https://ethercalc.net/]

    baserow had a lot of what i wanted, but the top-level feature set seemed very oriented towards a db admin tool rather than a programmatically managed user interface to single tables or views.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • nocodb

    🔥 🔥 🔥 Open Source Airtable Alternative - turns any MySQL, Postgres, SQLite into a Spreadsheet with REST APIs.

    Thanks for the shoutout (NocoDB founder here). Rowy demo looks good. Would love to try it.

    NocoDB[1] works differently than rowy, we transform existing MySQL/Postgres/SQLite into Airtable like spreadsheet.

    Github : https://github.com/nocodb/nocodb

    Docker : docker run -d -p 8080:8080 nocodb/nocodb

  • Hasura

    Blazing fast, instant realtime GraphQL APIs on your DB with fine grained access control, also trigger webhooks on database events.

    Wonder if Rowy could be modified to use Hasura[0], a realtime grahql front-end to Postgres

  • Killed by Google

    Part guillotine, part graveyard for Google's doomed apps, services, and hardware.

    Given that Google will cancel it in a couple of years[0], it's not worth investing time and effort to build on Google's products.
