While I typically use AirTable for generating dashboards and storing internal information, Retool is a pretty slick looking interface to build internal tools. I also love the idea that end users don't need to log in to AirTable for another tool they aren't familiar with. Instead you use forms and other elements to empower your co-workers.

@allnick thank you! I’m a big fan of Airtable as well. We’re currently using it to store leads! Retool is good if you’re connecting to data you have, in other places. Like SQL databases, APIs, and yes - Airtable. Then you can build all sorts of custom tools on top of them. Thanks for hunting us!!

@dvdhsu very impressive ! a lot of dev and designer witing for this kind of tools, because we need more Designer friendly app to build custom app...only to be sure, does retool build with Bubble ? and how about on premise option for hosting generated app?

congrats on the launch, quite impressed so far! One question, do you plan on allowing developers to create custom components? E.g. I might like to have a Map component which renders routes, not points. Allowing for this custom developments and allowing to share them in marketplace approach might expand the feature set quickly.

@marcbc We're always adding components and have built up quite a library. If you want it, we've probably built it. If not, let us know!

@marcbc we will soon! That’s on our roadmap. If you think about it, all our components have props and state. In the near future, we’ll let you import your own React components!

That's really cool. Your landing page is amazing btw, nice animations ! If there was a way to create admin dashboards with charts it would be great. Is that a feature you will add in the future ?

@_fones @sahinkevin You can find a full list of components here: https://docs.tryretool.com/refer.... There are plenty of components off the beaten path: tabbed containers, JSON forms, even bounding-box labelling for machine learning data!
