Airtable API Tutorial with cURL and JavaScript

By James Quick

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to persist your application data, look no further than Airtable. Airtable is basically an excel sheet like database that has tons of flexibility and a GUI for inspecting/creating data.

I’ve used Airtable as the DB for a few of my demo apps recently, and I love it. There are other great options like Firebase, for example, but Airtable seems the easiest for me. In this article, let’s explore how to create a base (Airtable’s word for a database) and then perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations against it in two different ways, raw HTTP requests and the Airtable JavaScript package on NPM.

Getting Started

As with most products these days, you can sign up for free with Airtable. They do have a paid tier, but the free tier is more than enough and will probably last you a while. Sign up here
