Came up with idea

I was building a no-code API builder to help front-end developers create a quick API with a Google Sheet or Airtable backend, so that you can have a CMS for your clients and an API for yourself to quickly develop your app or website.

After some research I concluded that this idea had been done before a number of times and most importantly, I had the realization that people don't want to build an API, they want to build a website or app, the API is just a means to an end.

So decided to skip the API, and make a website builder that plugs into any third-party database or spreadsheet.

The infrastructure is still there if I ever want to build the API builder, if anyone is interested!
