Connecting via Zing Data

Zing Data allows you to quickly build reports and queries from inside your mobile. bit.io works great with Zing.

First, sign into Zing, and add a Postgres datasource:

19821982

Then, go your repo page and click on the green Connect button in the upper left. You'll want to copy the password from that screen.

On the Zing data source configuration, set the host to db.bit.io, the username to your bit.io username, the database to your repo name, and the password you copied from the connect screen in bit.io.

Next, you'll be asked to pick some tables. Note that you're going to see all of your data, and all of bit.io's public tables. Any can make their data public on bit.io, but by default, your data is private. So anything you see here someone decided to make public.

Choose if you want all the tables, or select the ones you'd like to use. Then click save.

Congrats! Fire up Zing on your mobile device and you can start creating and sharing your reports & queries!
