This looks great! Thanks for packaging. In the admin interface, this is listed as low quality despite the integration level of 7; is this intentional?

It looks like our weekly catalog update has yet to be run, so its level is not yet published there. You can trust the level 7 tag for the time being, and ignore that warning.

(Note for future readers: this is a temporary solution for a temporary issue, do not blindly install low quality apps!)

Enjoy! :rocket:

Hi !

Thanks for porting this app, I was hoping for a long time for a baserow packaging but NocoDB seems a bit more advanced and more open.

Will Yunohost LDAP be supported in the future ?

Thanks !

Sure, but for that we need to have the NocoDB itself being compatible with LDAP, which is not currently the case. :disappointed:

Hi @tituspijean, will the NocoDB package be updated regularly ?

I noticed that the NocoDB team released a few new features that seem quite essential, like CSV and Excel import/export, and generally they seem to be developing a lot of cool features for the near future.

I’m sorry I don’t know how to do it myself and can’t suggest a PR :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks !

By the way, appart from NocoDB, is anyone here aware of other (OS or not) Airtable alternatives ?
It would be cool to have some sort of curated list (if people are interested I could open a new topic).
I tried Baserow, which is pretty advanced but has a lot of “locked features”.
I also heard of SeaTable and DirectUs, but haven’t looked deeper into them.

Cheers everyone !

No problem, that’s “my job”. I have implemented the auto-updater, it should help us keep up with the releases. (Already v0.83?!, it was 0.9 three months ago). A PR to update it is being tested.

Some discussions happened over there: Baserow an open source (MIT) no-code database - The future of Excel/Calc/Sheets - Airtable like app. Please use the Discuss section for such considerations. Let’s stick on NocoDB here. :wink:


v0.83.5 packaged! :rocket:

@tituspijean I saw that there is a small problem when trying to attach media to a database row: clicking on the field the reverse proxy seems to not handle this correctly. Maybe some additional location has to be set in the reverse proxy configuration?

When there is a filed of type “Attachment” and you add a file, this works well. If you afterwards want to retrieve the file by clicking on it, you get an error message because of the link/reference pointing to:

http://127.0.0.1:8095/download/noco/hunk/Sheet-1/title6/48uyrn.txt

For me it looks, as if the localhost is used instead of the real server’s fully qualified domain name.
