When you create a new Xano project, you're taken through a wizard called Jumpstart. It asks you to specify a few things about your project and allows Xano to automatically create a backend to get you started. 💪
After you create an account and your Instance, your next step should be to create a Workspace. On the first page of Jumpstart, We'll ask you a bit about yourself so we can tailor the Xano experience to you. This will affect what videos and tutorials we show you.
Enter the name of your Workspace:
Pick how you want to get started
Start from scratch - Define database tables based on the app you're planning on building. We'll handle generating the CRUD API Endpoints for you
Import from Airtable - Sync your bases, relationships and content. (learn more)
Start with a template - We've created pre-made Backend templates which include database tables, API endpoints and dummy content.
Starting from scratch
You can add as many tables as you want and even remove the user table if your app doesn't have users. There is the option to add CRUD endpoints for each table which are APIs that allow you to Create, Read, Update, and Delete records from your Database.
Xano can pre-install a few extensions which do the heavy lifting of implementing things like payments, SMS messaging and more.
Authentication is the process that allows your users to sign up and log in to your app. Xano comes equipped with Authentication tools that you can turn on here. We offer the ability to authenticate via Email and the special option of using Google's OAuth tool.
Google's OAuth tool is an extension that is offered in the Xano Marketplace, which requires configuration after your Workspace is created.
Just hit Finish and your Workspace is created.
