Hi all,
I have recently come across AirTable and love it for the simplicity it offers for managing a semi-complex product catalog (i.e. flexible categories, groupings, pictures, etc.). I’m exploring migrating my current catalog to AirTable from my current self-developed database. However, I wanted to ask if there’s an easy way to pull a Block into a web page to display on my public website? I know it’s possible to export the PDF, but I’d really like to export a product sheet into a tile on my website.

I know I can leverage the API to pull the data and do the coding on my side, but it would be so much easier to pull in the Block altogether.

Thanks,
Max

Welcome to the community, @Max_Nokhrin! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Airtable does support block embedding, but one major caveat is that it currently exposes your entire database, not just a single block containing data for a single record. For any kind of custom display based on data from Airtable, using the API to pull the data is the preferred method at the moment AFAIK.

Thank you!

I see. I was hoping I could embed a Block (page designer) and pass it a unique ID of the record as embedded code from my website.

Regards,

Max
