Airtable vs Sheetlabs: What are the differences?
Developers describe Airtable as "Real-time spreadsheet-database hybrid *". Working with Airtable is as fast and easy as editing a spreadsheet. But only Airtable is backed by the power of a full database, giving you rich features far beyond what a spreadsheet can offer. On the other hand, *Sheetlabs** is detailed as "Turn your spreadsheets into APIs effortlessly". Drag & drop your data, name your API and choose what data people can see - that's it. Documentation is created automatically.
Airtable and Sheetlabs can be categorized as "Spreadsheets as a Backend" tools.
Some of the features offered by Airtable are:
- Link Tables
- Fully mobile
On the other hand, Sheetlabs provides the following key features:
- Import spreadsheets from CSV, XLS and XLSX formats. You can even Zip or Gzip your spreadsheets first. Replace or update spreadsheet data whenever you like
- Create APIs from your data: define what queries can be made over the data, limit what data is returned and how much
- Interact with the APIs in a variety of formats: JSON, XML, JSONP, YAML and PHP serialised arrays
