Airtable
UI Bakery allows you to easily connect to Airtable with no need for additional layers like APIs and 3rd-party services.
Airtable imposes certain limitations to API abilities:
  • 5 requests per second, per base.

Configuration

3 essential components are required to connect your Airtable database to UI Bakery:
  • API Key.
You can find and copy it from your Airtable account page:

  • List of database Tables.
Open your database and copy the exact names of the Tables you need to use in your app.
