Hot off the heels of this week’s exciting API auth and documentation updates, I’m excited to show and tell you about a Raycast extension that uses the new OAuth and metadata endpoints.
First - What’s Raycast? Raycast is an extendable alternative to Apple’s Spotlight.
The new Airtable Raycast extension allows a user to browse the bases, tables, fields, and views they granted the application access to (a part of the Airtable OAuth flow).
A GIF of the basic functionality is below and you can follow this link to the Raycast extension store to learn more and install the extension.
The extension is open source at https://github.com/Airtable-Labs/raycast-extension and https://github.com/raycast/extensions/tree/main/extensions/airtable
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. I think there’s a lot that could be improved and would love to hear your ideas too!
Special thanks to @SeanKeenan and other teammates for their help!
