Hi! I'm one of the creators of Airtable, and we're very honored to be on ProductHunt today. In a world increasingly filled with highly specific, push-button applications, Airtable is designed to give people a flexible medium to build their own tools -- a lego kit of sorts. We started with a graphical spreadsheet interface that allows anyone to create a database to organize anything from wedding planning to job applicants. What's interesting about our newly launched API is that it's not so much an API for Airtable itself, but rather a way for you to create a custom, well-documented API for each of your own Airtable apps. I.e. when you create a database in Airtable (a CRM for, instance), it comes with its own API whose documentation and route structure is specific to your user-defined database structure and data. Since Airtable is fully realtime (and it's the first to do so for a relational database model, unlike Google Docs or Sheets), one cool thing you can try out is to build a simple API integration to create or modify records while you have the Airtable GUI open, and you'll see the changes appear live on the page.
Great job guys, we love airtable and looking forward to using the new API
Great product guys.
