I am struggling with the same topic. I have great data, but finding the right solutions to publish my data in a secured (login/password) way, with a lot of filter options is very hard.
I’m under the impression you need to be above-average-Java-skilled, and I know I am not :winking_face:
I have been trying Awesome Tables (Google on that one) and I like their product a lot.
I tried the airpress - (airtable+wordpress) intigration and I can’t even get my data to populate. I am not a natural wordpress user so the learning curve is heavy.
I like the table2site service. But I have 10+ sites closing in on the project due date and the costs here are per site. I’m not sure how comfortable I am leaning on another service that could disappear in the night.
The most dependable option I have been able to produce results has been embedding the table view of choice into - google sites.
The embed option is of course very reliable. I am not going to say I am happy with how my google sites look at all. But its easy to share specific views.
Check out https://stacker.app/. It’s a bit pricey, but I think it does exactly what you’re looking for. I’ve been playing around with it a bit and am extremely impressed. My use case is providing clients with a unique login to access their specific information stored in an Airtable record (including access to multiple linked tables). It’s important that the client sees their information, and only their information. Airtable fails miserably at this on its own. Stacker.app does this beautifully and without much effort.
What a great resource. Played with it all evening last night. I do find it annoying to be considering so many outside paid tools to do what this already paid tool should.
The data set up output looks like Zenkit’s newer “wiki” view feature.
I completely agree. It’s hard to justify another monthly subscription. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like improving access to data by non-table owners is a big priority for Airtable. I love the product, but this is one of the biggest holes IMO. I’m still playing with Stacker as well, but the more I play, the more I’m excited about what I can make with it. It’s really flexible and fills that great big hole that Airtable has left for displaying data for those outside of the organization.
I was able to figure it out pretty easily and support was quick with replies when needed. I quickly discovered you will need to upgrade if you want to customize. Pricing is per individual website and that was a show stopper for me.
EDIT I just looked over the site and pricing has changed with multi site plans added. I may go have a relook now!
I highly enjoyed and found it to be a great solution and has seemed stable since my discovery a year or so ago.
Oh, that’s fabulous to hear @Dawn_Attridge :tada: They seem to have a lot of functionality with the free option, which is great for me to play around a bit. I’m hoping to hear from their team soon to see about getting an invite so I can access the premium plan. :crossed_fingers:
Earlier this year I looked at stacker.app for a solution to this but when I saw how pricy it was and the lack of customization of their website, I decided to jump in and create my own Airtable-to-website integration using php. I created a template that I’ve used for clients to create very complex web applications with members log-in portals, different paid membership, lots of member only content like news and events, etc. If this sounds interesting, let me know and I can share more of the details.
We are building Softr.io, which allows building powerful websites & web-apps using Airtable as a database. We are soon releasing the User Accounts functionality, so users will be able to create Membership websites, like marketplaces, listings, upvoting sites and more :slightly_smiling_face:
Hi Enrique, I like what I saw on Airvues. I’m wondering how your system will deal with a base that has 15.000 records. I also am a little confused about the pricing. I talks about a price per website. I already have a domain name, and I’m just looking for a system that will link my base to a website and publish my data behind a login.
Do you have some more info for me? André
Thank you for checking out Airvues. I have some clients that have over 10,000 records. For these kind of applications Airvues uses pagination in order to speed up loading times. Airvues has 3 pricing tiers, a free tier which allows for 1 website and only some template styles, a starter tier which allows up to 3 websites and gives you access to all template types as well as custom domains, and the pro tier which allows up to 10 websites plus custom template support. You would probably just need the free or the starter tier, depending on what type of template you are looking for.
If you have further questions, please feel free to let me know on here or you can also email me at email@example.com.
All the best,
