Export Airtable data to files on disk


Install this tool using pip:

$ pip install airtable-export


You will need to know the following information:

  • Your Airtable base ID - this is a string starting with app...
  • Your Airtable API key - this is a string starting with key...
  • The names of each of the tables that you wish to export

You can export all of your data to a folder called export/ by running the following:

airtable-export export base_id table1 table2 --key=key

This example would create two files: export/table1.yml and export/table2.yml.

Rather than passing the API key using the --key option you can set it as an environment variable called AIRTABLE_KEY.


To contribute to this tool, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd airtable-export
python -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and tests:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
