Try out a demo
If you just want to try out Baserow, you can create an account on the SaaS version at https://baserow.io. Just click on the create account or register button at the homepage.
If you want to try out Baserow on your own computer, you can easily start a demo environment via
docker-compose. Just clone the repository, run the following commands and visit http://localhost:3000 in your browser.
$ docker network create baserow_demo_default $ docker-compose -f docker-compose.demo.yml up
If you want to contribute to Baserow you need to setup the development environment. Execute the following commands to start the backend API server.
Note that the container might have a different name like
$ docker network create baserow_default $ docker-compose up -d $ docker exec -it backend bash $ python src/baserow/manage.py migrate $ python src/baserow/manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000
Visit http://localhost:8000/api/groups/ in your browser and you should see a JSON response containing "Authentication credentials were not provided.". This means that it is working!
In order to start the web-frontend environment you may execute the following commands.
$ docker network create baserow_default $ docker exec -it web-frontend bash $ yarn install $ yarn dev
The Baserow development environment is now running. Visit http://localhost:3000 in your browser and you should see a working version in development mode.
More detailed instructions and more information about the development environment can be found here or at https://baserow.io/docs/development/development-environment.
Because of the modular architecture of Baserow it is possible to create plugins. Make your own fields, views, applications, pages or endpoints. We also have a plugin boilerplate to get you started right away. More information can be found in the plugin introduction and in the plugin boilerplate docs.
The official documentation can be found on the website at https://baserow.io/docs/index or here inside the repository. The API docs can be found here at https://api.baserow.io/api/redoc/ or if you are looking for the OpenAPI schema here https://api.baserow.io/api/schema.json.
