APITable Is An Open-source Low-code Solution and Airtable Alternative

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.

However, APITable requires a server with considerable hardware specifications. It is recommended to have at least 4 CPUs/8 GB RAM.

Note that the Native arm64 (Apple Silicon) container images is not ready yet and may cause bad performance.
