Introducing CloudTables

It is with real pleasure that I introduce our latest software: CloudTables.

CloudTables builds upon DataTables, Editor and the rest of our software, presenting a quick and easy way for you to develop database applications through a web UI. You then embed the resulting table and editor directly into your own application giving a seamless interface to your own users.

As well as the ability to define your own databases CloudTables also has:

  • Live updates of data as others are editing
  • Full auditing - see what has changed and who made the change
  • Hosted - no need for potentially complex infrastructure
  • Easy data validation

CloudTables is in beta, so there are still features that we plan to add before a full release, but we are very keen to get feedback. If you'd like to give CloudTables a go, please do so! We also have video tutorials to help get started.

There is more detail of CloudTables available in this blog post including how we see it interacting with DataTables and Editor development moving forward.

Support for CloudTables is going to be primarily e-mail based rather than in these forums, but we do welcome feedback here if you'd like to post any here, or use the CloudTables contact option.

Regards,
Allan

    I took a look at the current video tutorials. Very promising solution! I hope you guys get ready with this soon! This could save a lot of front end coding effort. I would also need to understand how I can integrate more complex back end processing getting triggered by things like setFormatters, server side events etc. or proprietary ajax calls.

    I am particularly interested in a self hosted version because I need to host this in a particular EU-country due to legal requirements of my clients.

    Hi Roland,

    Quick feature update first - we'll be rolling out computed values soon, and then importing data, hopefully later this month. We'll be moving out of beta at that point. It isn't likely we'll have a self hosted version this month, but it is near the top of our list of things to work on.

    Currently there are no options to add extra programming into the backend. This is intentional in CloudTables - there will be no way to add extra set formatters and the like. However, we do plan to had support for webhooks, so you can get notifications about actions such as update, insert and delete (and then take further action yourself via the API if needed).

    Regards,
    Allan

    Thanks Allan!

    That would be very helpful in deed!
