Backend data stores?

I wonder if you have plans/thoughts on supporting databases or other backend services to be able to query and work with larger datasets?


(This is awesome)

In short: Yes, we do — although we’re not yet ready to discuss specifics.

In a bit longer: Observable notebooks are really going to shine when they’re securely coupled to your private data, or your private big data, or your private streaming data. We’re excited about the possibilities, but need to figure out some of the best strategies for connecting an Observable notebook to a remote computation — perhaps running in your database or data center.

If you can’t wait for us release something, at the moment you can get pretty far by creating a JSON API for your dataset that your notebook can query over the web.


Sounds great, thanks!
