Hey everyone,

Excited to share a new tool we built for Looker users that work with Airtable - Sync Inc (syncinc.so). With a couple clicks, we’ll setup a hosted Postgres follower database containing all your Airtable data. We keep your database in sync in real-time. All you have to do is connect your Sync Inc database to Looker with the standard Amazon RDS Postgres connector (or you can go to a provider like Snowflake first).

Airtable and Looker are a great fit. Airtable makes it easy for teams to create and manage data that Looker can then tap into to surface live metrics for the business. But Looker doesn’t have first-class support for Airtable. On top of that, the Airtable API is a little limited and clumsy.

As we all know, Looker has first-class support for Postgres databases. By turning your Airtable base into a Postgres database, you can plug your Airtable data into Looker in no time.

You can try it out totally free here: https://syncinc.so.

If you’re curious about how it all works, check out our docs: https://docs.syncinc.so/

We’re looking forward to hearing feedback and answering any questions.
