Hey there, I could really use a walkthrough of how to set up basic CRUD using Xano. I’m a bubbler by background, so apologize in advance if I refer to it’s language a bit. I have started trying to learn WeWeb by recreating a bubble app we use as an internal tool to manage a business function.
Starting simply by creating a database in Xano called Resources that holds info about resources that can be consumed in the BOM (bill of Material) of making a product. XANO was EZPeezy, worked great. Here is an image of the product database.
I pre populated some data on the Xano side. Then set up a page/UX that lists the records in the database and has buttons to hide/show a form for entering new, and a delete button for deleting individual records. Again, EZPeezy on the WeWeb UX design side.
See each here:
Relative to CRUD, setting up to READ from Xano was easy. No issues getting that to work. But unable to figure out ADD, EDIT or DELETE.
For ADD, my new resources form, collects all of the input fields. And when I try to trigger an action to add a record to the database, unlike in Joyce’s video with airtable, no option to “add a record” shows up. When I try using an api and pasting in the url for add a record, I get this:
For the life of me, I cannot figure out what to put in the key field. Nor can I even find the input fields from the form.
For DELETE records, I have the same issue. no action item with this option and calling the URL/API leads me to the same odd Key/result fields that I can’t navigate when I just want to delete the “current record” from the repeating group.
For EDIT, I would like to allow the user to edit in place the fields with boxes around them. (description and cpu). In bubble, we just selected “bind to active record” and it worked. Is there a proper weweb alternative to “bind to active record”?
SORRY for the length of all this! Appreciate if you can point me to a tutorial that can help me figure this out.
