Jumpstart

When you create a new Xano project, you're taken through a wizard called Jumpstart. It asks you to specify a few things about your project and allows Xano to automatically create a backend to get you started. 💪

Here it is step-by-step:

After you create an account and your Instance, your next step should be to create a Workspace. On the first page of Jumpstart, we have a video that teaches you step-by-step how to set up your Workspace.

Xano Jumpstart takes you through the process of setting up the Backend for your project.

Enter the name of your Workspace:

Give your Workspace a name and a description.

Do you need help building? We have two options: "I'll build it myself" or "Have an expert build it for you."

If you choose to have an expert build it for you, you will be able to contact our team. One of our experts will reach out to you and get the conversation started.

Two options: "I'll build it myself" or "Have an expert built it for you."

Pick the initial Database tables that you want to start with, Xano already provides you with a User table.

You can add as many tables as you want and even remove the user table if your app doesn't have users. There is the option to add CRUD endpoints for each table which are APIs that allow you to Create, Read, Update, and Delete records from your Database.

Enter your Database tables names and choose if you want CRUD endpoints automatically generated for each table.

Add Authentication to your app:

Authentication is the process that allows your users to sign up and log in to your app. Xano comes equipped with Authentication tools that you can turn on here. We offer the ability to authenticate via Email and the special option of using Google's OAuth tool.

Google's OAuth tool is an extension that is offered in the Xano Marketplace, which requires configuration after your Workspace is created.

Choose how you want your users to log in and sign up.

Just hit Finish and your Workspace is created.

All of the Database tables will be created and all of the C.R.U.D. APIs will be created for each table. If you chose to add Authentication these endpoints will show up in your API groups.

In your Workspace, you will find the automatically generated CRUD API endpoints.
