I was hoping to use Airtable as a lightweight, convenient prototyping backing store for my web application, with the nice bonus that it’s usable by non-technical admins as a sort of admin UI. However, it seems like there’s no secure way to make that work if I want my app to be able to upload user-created content through the API.
Obviously, that’s a non-starter. Am I missing something, or is Airtable simply not intended for this use case?
(I realize I can use an embedded form to submit to the table, but unfortunately that’s not an option for me as I need to do custom styling and validation on the form.)
