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

    nocodb dev team was very generous for me when helping me evaluate their product for my use case, including creating a test environment to understand my request.

    I ended up not using them, but they created an issue for me on GitHub, saying my request was on their roadmap.

    Oh and they quickly researched a solution to an installation bug I was experiencing.

    TL;DR: great customer service from nocodb, so I'm happy to consider nocodb for future projects.

  • budibase

    Budibase is an open-source low code platform that helps you build internal tools in minutes 🚀

    From the other comments, I haven't tried tooljet (https://tooljet.io) or budibase (https://budibase.com) but I did have a look at those apps.

    This, for me, was easiest to try out. And quite impressive, honestly.

    The key point was that in each table, the 'title' column (created by default) has a special meaning as they show up in the join columns cleanly.

    Amazing and congratulations.

  • Appwrite
