  1. There’s no API call for exporting a table as CSV right? (couldn’t find it in API documentation)

  2. Has anyone written a script that mimic that functionality by iterating through all the records, replacing linked record IDs with names, and then, generating said CSV? If not, I’ll work on writing one…

I’d also like the script!

I built a desktop app that lets you export your Airtable data to CSV files. It also converts Linked records to corresponding Primary field values.

Its at https://www.pagemonk.com/export . Hope it helps somebody !!

Following up on my original post 3 years later… A friend mine made a webapp to do automatic regular cab backups. They’re having some login issues with the community account, so posting on their behalf:

Created https://backuptable.com after trying and failing to find a means of regularly backing up my bases on airtable. BackupTable doesn’t try to do anything more or less than what the name implies - it backs up everything you have on airtable (plus attachments) and can do so either manually or automatically. Dropbox sync coming soon.

Hope people find it useful and would love to hear feedback :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello, I was facing similar problem lately, and decided to create a python package just for this.


You could programmatically download csv from any shared view. While you can download csv without API key, sadly you have to create a shared view link for this to work

Hi @Tuur @Steven_Zhang, can you share the script via PM please?

@Tuur could you share the script with me as well via PM?

I’m getting an HTTP 404 on the link; site loads fine.
