Convert your Google Sheet into a website
We all love Google Sheet (at least who use it), which took the Excel struck on the Desktop to the cloud, no more attaching files to email. When such a powerful collaborative tool is exposed to other apps like Zapier, Integromate, it can do wonder. Google Sheet can act as a dynamic data store, but what it lacks is a familiar web interface. Say, you have a table of data you want to present it to your users or customers, won't it make a difference?
I had the same question, collected some feedback on Reddit. Not to mention, there are a few solutions, tackling in their own ways.
We have launched on Product Hunt , do share your feedback there!
I decided to build MyQuickSite.com, using a simple stable tech stack. MyQuickSite lets you convert your Google Sheet into a nice Website or Webpage. You can,
- Choose basic layouts like Table, List, or Grid
- Enable search on any fields
- Enable or disable Sidebar
- Choose a template or write your own CSS or combine both
- Map your own domain
- Make your website public or private
- Configure your site theme (like colors)
