Hi there -

Does anyone have more specifics on how to use AIrtable as a backend?

Mostly, I want to create a custom form where the questions and answers shown are based on previous answers and custom filtering that is too complex for views.

This is a tutorial, but I am not sure if it’s only a matter of setting up an HTML with a javascript section(I’ve never had a javascript application on a webpage) or something else…

This thread is one starting point if you want to use the REST API directly.

Coding a web front end for an Airtable back end (without using a 3rd party service) is not just a matter of setting up html with a javascript section. One key aspect is determining how you are going to keep your API key secret–never expose your API key client-side–and that usually means you need your own server or service that acts as your server.
