Connecting via Appsmith

Appsmith is an easy way to create data-driven applications. Using Appsmith's Postgres driver you can easily connect to bit.io. First, select "Datasources" > "New Datasource." Next, click "PostgreSQL".

Copy the connection details from the "Connect" menu on your bit.io database page. Set your Host Address to db.bit.io and your port to 5432. Use the username and password from the Connect menu. For database name, it is necessary to replace the / with a ..

🚧

Replace / with . in Database Name

To work with Appsmith, you must modify the database name from the "Connect" menu by replacing the / between the username and database name components with a .. So GettingStarted.MyDatabase will work, but GettingStarted/MyDatabase will not.

You're done! From here, you can add queries, widgets, and more to make your data-based app.
