Add-ons in Google Sheets have a lot of power to read and write to your Sheet. While other similar Add-ons might claim to be privacy-centric, ours is the only one that you can verify by looking at our code.

May 8, 2021 Added OAuth2 connections

OAuth2 is always confusing to me even though I've implemented it a few times. I learn it and then quickly forget the details so I always have to re-learn it. I was worried about doing it in Google Apps Script since that adds an extra layer of stuff on top of it all. Fortunately, I found an excellent library on GitHub and I've already added GitHub and Google Analytics (with many more planned). As far as I know, Data Connector is the only Sheets Add-on of it's kind that lets you have OAuth2 connections on the free tier. Our competitors either make you pay for it or don't offer it at all.

April 26, 2021 Over 5,000 users and reached 50 stars on GitHub 🥳

Just over 1 month in and already crossed the 5,000 user mark! 🥳 Granted, some of those users were from my slimmed-down version that I used to validate the idea but it seems to be gaining steam. The 50 stars on GitHub, however, were all earned in the past month. Despite having some early bugs that hurt on-boarding and a bare-bones feature set, early users have appreciated the open source approach, especially when we're dealing with sensitive things like API Keys and the like.

Still not sure how many of those users will convert to paid users once I turn on payments again but will be fun to find out!

March 2021 Launched Data Connector

Launched Data Connector for Google Sheets. Frontend built with React and backend build in Golang. Data Connector is the only API connector for Google Sheets that is open source. Learning how to launch and run Google Sheets Add-ons can be a bit tricky.
