Hi,
We use Airtable as a database & are currently using Stacker to project it visually (front) but we don’t like Stacker UX & design.
Is there a way to directly use Webflow as the front of our Airtable database ?
If yes, would like support from the community on how we can do that :slightly_smiling_face:
Thanks in advance !

Yes, absolutely. You can design and host your frontend with Webflow+CMS, and use a tool like PowerImporter to sync Airtable to your CMS in the background.

great !

  • When you say CMS you mean the one from Webflow ?
  • Is your suggested solution as efficient as using Stacker ? (e.g. Stacker autofill function & link between tabs)

@Anthony_Berthon Not sure if you’re looking for a solution here, but you could use whalesync.com for this. It lets you sync data in real-time from Airtable to Webflow. This effectively lets you use Airtable as a backend for your Webflow site.

This works via the Webflow CMS. All your Airtable data syncs into the Webflow CMS and then Webflow displays it.

If you’re trying to build an internal tool, something like Stacker or Noloco might be easiest. If you need more design control, then Airtable + Whalesync + Webflow might be better.

I'm also interested in this and have noticed whalesynch here and there and wondered if this might be a useful too for us...?

I have a webapp similar problem to the OP but we have miniextensions instead of Stacker. We need folks to have their own editable profile page while also being able to browse common libraries of items (articles, videos, etc). 

Is it possible to do this with Whalesynch, Airtable and Webflow?
