What are your frustrations with Airtable's API?

I recently used AirTable's API on some side projects and was frustrated by a few things:

  1. The rate limit of 5 requests/second can be blown up for a popular site
  2. The single API key that is read/write (so don't use it in a JS app unless you want the world yo edit your base)
  3. Pagination is just bizarre so showing more than 100 records at a time is difficult

What are your frustrations and what crazy hoops have you had to jump through to bend AirTable to your will?
