I’m Fairly new to the coding side of Airtable. There are terms I don’t understand yet. Could someone explain what is REST API? Where can I learn more about it too?

The Airtable REST API is a way that the world outside of an Airtable base can interact with an Airtable base. Some major difference between using the REST API and scripting or custom apps:

  • the code typically resides outside of Airtable, such as on a web server
  • the code can be written in a language other than JavaScript.

To learn specifically about the Airtable REST API, look at the documentation: https://api.airtable.com.
