No code Tools
Nocode for Kids
I would choose based on the user-interface.
Airtable for sure - especially because the UX is very similar to that of a spreadsheet which means that it requires less explanation and learning to use.
Notion - I've used it before and while the interface is great, I'm not sure that it really works as a good CMS. (This is a personal opinion). Also, navigating Notion (in comparison to Airtable) requires time.
Obsidian - I've not tried using Obsidian as a CMS but as a note-taking app. Again figuring out how to use it is quite a task - and this was to just to take notes. Also, their phone to laptop sync is terrible (iOS) and the Airtable app is brilliant - so points to Airtable again.
Thank you. Great points!
What's your take on the frontend? Does nextjs make sense?
Airtable is definitely a better cms and I like it.
Btw, Obsidian sync is sexy if you have your vault syncd to icloud and use the desktop app to point to it. Pretty straightforward.
@Krishanu Dhar I haven't used nextjs - so unsure.
That's exactly what I did! I used icloud because I didn't wanna use their native sync. It doesn't sync well though. Apple notes is still the best (only consider sync that is)
I think it would depend on your use case.
1. Airtable has alot of integrations with no-code tools already so it would be an ideal choice for you to go for.
2. Mean while, Notion api has just been launched so it might take some time for others to add those integrations. But I still think if your cms is not too complex you can go for notion. I built quarate.in with Notion :)
3. Obsidian- I have not extensively used obsidian so can't comment on that.
Thank you Kevin. Will it make sense to use nextjs as the frontend irrespective of Airtable or Notion cms?
I haven't look up the integrations yet. But I wouldn't be surprised to see std integrations with Airtable and Notion.
Yes @Krishanu Dhar, I can vouch for Airtable with next js. Have seen people build
Build Fullstack applications with Next.js then
Use Tailwind CSS with Next.js and
Integrate Airtable in NextJS with API Routes/Serverless Functions
