A lot can be done using our web interface. Everyhing going on you admin dashboard is essentially running SQL queries on your isolated database, and saving and retrieving static files. Our integrated SQL shell for each database takes this concept to the next level. Giving you the ability to run SQL queries directly via your browser. To get started using our GUI, follow these steps:

1. Create Account

Create a free account here

2. Create Database

Navigate to your Dashboard or Databases page. Click the "Add Database" button to add a new database.

On the next screen that appears, fill in the form and add a database image if you wish. Click on "Create Database" to add the new database

Creating a new database takes you to the database page. This page allows you to import a pre-existing database using an SQL export file, or create a new table inside the newly-formed database. More operations for your database can be found in the database dropdown on the top left, or the "more" dropdown on the top right.

3. Add a table

Databases consists of Tables: each with fields(or columns) and entries(or rows). Select a database from your database list to access the single database pages. Click on "Add Table" and fill in the new table form.

On each table form you have access to the table fields(or column titles). Each field contains a few options:

  • Field Name: Name of field(or column title)
  • Data Type: type of data to be stored on that field: See All Datatypes
  • Required: Choose whether the field must have a value or not
  • Default Value: Default value of field in the case no value is entered.
  • More: The "More" button contains options for encryption and foreign keys

After these fields are filled, click "Add Field". Add as much field as you need. These fields serve as column titles for your table.

After creating a table you now have access to the tables list.

4. Add an Entry

Select the newly created Table and on the designated table page click on "Add New Table Entry"

Fill in the required fields and click on "Add Entry". Congrats, you have now created your first datasquirel data entry, you can now access this data from any platform using your api key.
