    🤔 A REST backend built with plain VBA Microsoft Excel macros. Yes. Macros.

    See webxcel, an excel macro that turns your workbook into a backend "database" with a rest api. It is an entire http server running in excel serving the worksheets. It even supports fastapi for using php pages.

  • Directus

    The Modern Data Stack 🐰 — Directus is an instant REST+GraphQL API and intuitive no-code data collaboration app for any SQL database.

    I've been playing with https://directus.io/ lately. It plops on top your existing db and provides a nice customizable GUI for it.
