Introduction

In this 2nd day of the 30 days no-code challenge I have worked with Xano.

In case you have ever been in a situation where you needed to save data, but didn’t have the skills and knowledge to use SQL or similar tools, Xano is your solution.

What is Xano?

Xano is a tool that allows you in the fastest way to build a scalable backend for your app using no-code. You can easily migrate and transform data from any place and you can work with a free server instance after you login.

Xano advantages

  1. Create tables easily
  2. Default authentication support
  3. Facebook OAuth, Google OAuth and LinkedIn OAuth
  4. Generated API endpoints for tables
  5. Swagger API documentation for each endpoint

Pricing plans

Xano has 3 main pricing models with extra support for agency and enterprise clients:

What did I create?

I recreated in Xano 6 tables of data from a previous project I worked on and tested how easy it would be to work with the Xano API. Here are some images from my work:
