Hi @Kasra I have tried several times to sign up for beta access to the base schema API, but have not received any response. I would very much like to test this API. We use Airtable with different clients as a simple CMS for data-driven sites. Retrieving lists of tables would allow us to greatly simplify the setup process.
Since Airtable doesn’t support exports/backups yet, I’m writing myself a backup tool to make sure that I have access to my data in an emergency. However, the fact that I can’t list tables using the API can easily result in missing data.
If Airtable doesn’t plan to provide an easy way to download all your data (à la Google Takeout, Twitter Archive, and Facebook “Download Your Information”) in the near future, it would be a good show of faith to make the API powerful enough to find and download all data for a user (or at least all data in a base) programmatically.
