#2 Product of the WeekFebruary 04, 2019

Turn any Google sheet into an API instantly, for free.

Power websites, apps, or whatever you like, all from a spreadsheet. Changes to your spreadsheet update your API in realtime.


  • Pros: 

    Awesome! Saves a lot of time


    How can this be free? Insane

    I'm afraid to become too dependent on it. How about an very friendly freemium model?

    Very easy to use and insanely fast


    There is no way to get my old api links if i close the tab

    I think this is a good starting point of making a great app.

    Andrei Panturu has used this product for one day.

Do you like cutting corners and questionable backends? Then oh have I got a product for you. I made Sheety so I could whip together prototypes and other experiences without the need to setup fiddly backends. Checkout an example API here: There's other Google Sheet to API services out there, but they were relatively pricey for what they did, and seemed a bit overkill for the types of prototyping I was doing.

@phillipcaudell this is awesome! Like the site design too - I have some similar 3D blocks ha. Will definitely do tutorials with this!

lol... perhaps the worst name for an app. Just ask any non native english speaker the name of your app.

@tostartafire @phillipcaudell I think I laughed a little too hard on this one.

What is the advantage of this over the Google Sheets REST API, which will presumably be much better maintained and documented?

@ernopp Speed to get something up and running. Their Quickstart isn't very quick (authorisation, API keys, etc – yuck!)

@ernopp @phillipcaudell There is a little bit easier way, see example in my comment below

Holy sheet! ;) 2 years ago I made a dashboard using GoogleSheets as a backend with this simple construction (for example): var url = "" + docID + "/od6/public/values?alt=json"; $.getJSON(url, function(data) { var entry = data.feed.entry; entry.forEach(function(item, index){ .... You can get DocID while publishing your Goolge Sheet to web

@evilksandr That sounds pretty neat, though I'm unable to get it to work. What might I be missing do you think? (I've made the spreadsheet public, tried the ID as well as the published ID which is slightly different)

@phillipcaudell The right full url is For the reference: My dashboard (made in two evenings) with GSheet as a backend - JS-code There is a function loadScoreBoard (docID, container) where you'll find an example of using this method

This looks awesome and very useful for makers. Do you plan to add a pricing beyond a certain number of API requests/hour?
PCMaker@phillipcaudell · Dangerously under qualified®
@jitesh_dugar Free forever as it's so simple to run! I'll probably add the ability to buy nicer URLs / rename your endpoints.

@phillipcaudell consider a donation model... you may at least get enough from people to cover what little costs you have

@twalling I've got a donation link at the bottom of the page, but perhaps I need to make it a little more prominent 😜

@twalling @phillipcaudell It also might be worth thinking about open sourcing it and running an open collective. That way there would be zero risk for adoption, as other people could spin up their own servers if yours goes down or they need it for a serious project.
