I’d love your feedback on a tool we’re working on, called Scripts.
What is it? An extension that embeds an onsite code editor into your bases.
Why would I need that? If you’ve ever used Google Scripts or VBA for automating spreadsheets, this is the same for Airtable.
It makes it easy to build custom alerts, automations, workflows, reports, and integrations for your bases, using short Python scripts. The extension handles API calls behind the scenes (even as the Airtable API is quite limiting), OAuth with other apps you’re integrating with, hosting, and more.
Who is it for? It’s designed for power users with a bit of Python experience, automation geeks, or API developers.
What’s the ask? Take the extension for a spin, reply back with your feedback, and don’t share too broadly just yet… we haven’t yet launched!
PS - here are some cool use-cases
