Quickstart tutorials

Get a quick walkthrough of Budibase and how it works.

To help you get started with Budibase, we've created two quickstart tutorials. With both tutorials, we build the same app, using the same data, just stored in different databases.

  1. Budibase DB quickstart tutorial - This tutorial is faster and easier to complete - there's no need to connect to an external database such as PostgreSQL. Everything you need is right within Budibase. This tutorial takes under 5 minutes.
  2. PostgreSQL quickstart tutorial - This tutorial should take between 5 and 10 minutes and involves connecting to a PostgreSQL database.

Not sure which database to use for your app?
