We know how much the no-code community loves Airtable. That’s why we decided to build a native Airtable integration that supports both reading and writing account access.
Now, of course, Ycode also comes with full-feature local databases in which you can store your data. The Airtable integration can be used instead of the Ycode database, or it can be combined with it. You decide!
To set up the integration, you need to add certain Airtable data. Let’s first see where to find this information.
Getting your Airtable data
As a first step, you’ll need to retrieve and set up an API key, Base ID, table name and view name.
To find your API key, log in to your Airtable account and then navigate to your account settings (or click this URL). Your API key can be found here:
Then configure your table information by first selecting a Base ID. You can find the Base ID here.
Then enter a table name.
Lastly, you can specify a view. This will impact the order in which your data returns from Airtable. For example, if you want to see your records in the same order as they appear in your table’s grid view, you’ll need to specify this when saving your Airtable data settings.
Adding Airtable data in Ycode
To get started, first head to your Database and click on Airtable in the External API section.
In this view, fill in:
You can also set up custom cache response data.
After saving this data, you’re all good to go! You can use Airtable data to create dynamic elements.
