:wave: Hi all!
Table2Site allows you to create no-code websites and uses Airtable as a CMS. You just have to add settings and content to your Airtable base and Table2site takes care of the rest :rocket: .
:ok_hand: It’s perfect for:

:mega: Let me know what you think :mega:

My only concern (the site looks awesome and exactly like what I have wanted!) is giving away my API key. Is there anything you can tell me about permissions / what the site can access once you have it?
Oct 11, 2018 09:53 PM
Unfortunately, Airtable doesn’t have restrictions on API keys. So your API key can read, update, create and delete records. Your API key can NOT see, nor change things in your account (like your data, payment plans, etc…).
Naturally, we only use it to read records from your database.
It’s a downside but I think they will change this in the future and allow you to limit your api key.
If you’re really worried about supersensitive data, it’s always better not to connect any 3rd party tools :-).

Is there a calendar template for Airtable, and if so, might this be used to create a simple events calendar? Or, a scheduling calendar?
Oct 12, 2018 10:27 AM
A calendar is not implemented at this point, sorry.

Appreciate your reply! I figured I’d only use this for non-sensitive data or on a separate account if anything. Thanks for your input!

This looks great. I’ve been waiting for something like this for a long time, since AirPress still seems a bit too time-consuming and difficult to me. I hope you develop it more so you can customize your own templates and fetch them with any type of contents, linked records, etc.
Thanks for taking the time for developing this, and good luck.

Please send me this info, I have dozens of projects that need this implementation.
Oct 18, 2018 05:13 AM
Not sure what you want me to email you :slightly_smiling_face: The website is up & running and you can test out the tool.
Oct 19, 2018 06:09 AM
Ok thanks Poehah, I will go to the site for the info I need.

Can we do newsletter signups if we don’t have MailChimp? Can we use other services?
Oct 19, 2018 11:07 PM
I’m going to include more newsletter services soon. Which service would you like to use?
Oct 20, 2018 04:53 AM
Kartra, Click Funnels, and Infusion Soft.

Just played with it yesterday and it’s absolutely amazing!
Oct 23, 2018 08:00 AM
Thank you for saying that

@poehah - correct me if I’m wrong here, but @Alex_Wolfe - since Table2Site only requires read only access, you can set up a read only user and give it access to just this 1 base, then use the API Key for that read only user. That way it doesn’t open it up to more bases or have to worry about writes to the data.
Nov 01, 2018 03:49 PM
If this is true then thank you! That’s a great workaround/solution.
Nov 02, 2018 06:05 AM
@openside @Alex_Wolfe very good point! That could indeed be a solution. We are introducing some features that require write access (such as a “like” button or voting options). If you don’t use these features, you’re good to use a read-only API key.

@poehah fyi we added Table2Site to our list of awesome Airtable resources here: https://builtonair.com/resources - thanks for doing awesome work!
