    Pros: 

    Easy to see all the power and potential of such a product.

    Cons: 

    Due to the third party nature of the API, some usages could find it limited in terms of transfer speed.

    Would like to know how a sheetson client can verify the data is not exposed between google and the API. Also it would be interesting to see improvements around the basic idea

  • Pros: 

    Fun experiment.

    Cons: 

    Airtable already exists.

    It's really really hard to see why you would not just use Airtable instead.

Please open source it
This would be fantastic as an open source project. Otherwise, I doubt anyone would give access to the IAM for anything useful.
Hi, I’m Ralph, maker of Sheetson I'm really happy to launch Sheetson's first ever version on Product Hunt! It is a super easy tool to help transform any Google Sheet into a database with RESTful API support. Built with user's data privacy in mind, Sheetson are operational even when the spreadsheet is private. The setup is so easy that even a grandma can do it 😉. That being said, Sheetson also focus on developers with a comprehensive documentation. Within MVP release, Sheetson allows basic CRUD API requests without advanced features of a RESTul API: - Relational tables - Filter/query - Sorting Your feedback is welcome! Stay tuned for upcoming updates 🙂
