APITable is a free open-source and self-hosted API-oriented low-code platform for building collaborative apps and better than all other Airtable open-source alternatives.
It comes with dozens of useful features which include team collaboration in real-time, automatic headless API dashboard, several data views, and automatic form generation.
APITable offers two editions: a self-hosted open-source free edition and an enterprise paid edition with advanced features that include SAML, Single-Sign-On (SSO), audit, database auto backup, data explorer, and watermark.
