Private beta for Notion API: join the waitlist

  1. 1

    this is great, thanks for sharing @channingallen i'm curious to see how this materializes.

    i've been using integrations for my SaaS (so far Basecamp, Trello, Asana) and it does seem to add a lot of value for users who manage tasks elsewhere but want a standalone CRM with ready-made capabilities.

    i've only used Notion a little bit with a contractor who loves it, i think i'm still wrapping my head around why people like it so much tbh!

    Thanks for sharing this Channing! Lots of possibilities here integrating aspects of Notion with existing web based enterprise collaborative services.

    They don't clearly mention the use cases when it is finally out. I'm assuming Notion as a CMS for website/blog would be one and rendering Notion pages as website pages though some people are already doing it.

    1. 1

      Yes could be embedded within other frameworks such as NextCloud and Pico that already have strong collaborative utilities, for example.

    Many thanks for sharing, I did it!

    Good news!
    Maybe it could kill tailored-notion.com ... or give me plenty of ideas?
    Time to pivot!

    Finallyyyyy!!! There’s about to be a wave of new products once this is live.

    Thanks Channing! Been waiting for this for so LONG! I've been forever eager to integrate Notion to my ai assisted bookmark manager app. 🔥

    Can someone explain to me what this is for? I would assume developers who want to integrate with or build on top of Notion.

    I can’t imagine a use case for the typical non-developer Notion user... or is there?

    1. 1

      i can spitball a few non-developer use cases:

      • convert new emails into notion pages/blocks
      • convert new tweets from select twitter accounts into notion pages/blocks
      • duplicate notion pages/blocks regularly (e.g. "daily schedule template" page)
      • etc. etc.
      1. 1

        I see, thanks. But I would assume that a developer would still need to build these tools for non-developers to use, right?

        1. 2

          I would assume that a developer would still need to build these tools for non-developers to use, right?

          devil is in the details of what you mean by "non-developers." e.g. if someone can use zapier, they'll be able to produce the automations i talked about. and given that this is the era of no-code (17,000 members!), i suspect a massive number of non-developers will be able to jump right in

          1. 1

            That makes sense. Thanks!
