NocoDB — The Open Source Airtable alternative


Hey Everybody, Hey Everybody ???? ????

We are thrilled to open source NocoDB today.

NocoDB is an open source Airtable alternative.

Github : https://github.com/nocodb/nocodb

NocoDB works by connecting to any relational database and transforming them into a smart spreadsheet interface! This allows you to build no-code applications collaboratively with teams. NocoDB currently works with MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, SQLite, Amazon Aurora & MariaDB databases.

Also NocoDB’s app store allows you to build business workflows on views with combination of Slack, Microsoft Teams, Discord, Twilio, Whatsapp, Email & any 3rd party APIs too. Plus NocoDB provides programmatic access to APIs so that you can build integrations with Zapier / Integromat and custom applications too.

????  Why we building this ?
Most internet businesses equip themselves with either spreadsheet or a database to solve their business needs. Spreadsheets are used by a Billion+ humans collaboratively every single day. However, we are way off working at similar speeds on databases which are way more powerful tools when it comes to computing. Attempts to solve this with SaaS offerings has meant horrible access controls, vendor lockin, data lockin, abrupt price changes & most importantly a glass ceiling on what’s possible in future.

❤️   Our Mission :
Our mission is to provide the most powerful no-code interface for databases which is open source to every single internet business in the world. This would not only democratise access to a powerful computing tool but also bring forth a billion+ people who will have radical tinkering-and-building abilities on internet.

????  Also how this all began ..
We open sourced two API solutions before NocoDB :
⚡ A no-code REST APIs generator for any MySQL DB. ~200,000 Docker pulls. This was a hobby project & had no GUI. ????
⚡ A low-code REST-GraphQL APIs generator for any database with GUI. Used by 100s of companies. Including fortune 500s & publicly trading companies. ????

The thing that surprised us the most was that even non-developers started using our API products & rooting for us. ???? ????  Whilst everybody loved instant API access to databases, it was slow-and-painful for them to build UI and collaborate with their teams. ???? ???? … This made us to radically rethink & combine the power of our 2 API products then transform them into something better.

????  And.. There is.. One last thing.. this makes it insanely good :

NocoDB can be run from a single node.js file with just SIX lines of code in it! This minimalism means NocoDB runs even on the smallest of servers. Not just AWS, DigitalOcean, Heroku but also in A2Hosting & similar.

Hope you loved it. ❤️
