A niche book catalog in Adalo

I’d like to build a micro SaaS, a member-gated niche book catalog, with some of the features of Goodreads: searchable book database, buy buttons, curated book lists, reading log, member forum, ability for members to shelve and tag books, and a member profile page that can be made public (including their bookshelf). Can this be built in Adalo?

Hi @bookishguy,

As for me it seems to be possible to implement all this functionality in Adalo.

Of course a lot will depend on the details of your requirements.

Best regards, Victor.

Thanks Victor. I think the big issue is generating this database and keeping it updated. What is the best way to do that? Right now I am manually creating the database as a Google Sheets and then I’m downloading the Google Sheets to Adalo.

Hey @bookishguy,

I’m not sure why are you using Google Sheets and not using Adalo directly.
If you would like to have a possibility to edit the database in real-time using some user-friendly interface, you could have a look at Airtable as a DB platform. Adalo could be integrated with Airtable quite easily.
