I want to develop an application by combining Baserow and AppSmith. The application requires that user can create an account, login and store some personal settings (language, contact information,…).
What is the best / recommanded approach for this?
Users create a Baserow account through a form by using the users rest-api. This API also allows me to check if login information is correct. I only need to set up to table with the personal settings linked to a field of the type “collaborator”. The question here is how many users I can link to a database (I expect to application to have about 100 users).
I create a new table “Users” where I store all the user information, including the login and password. In my AppSmith application, I encrypt the password before writing it to Baserow. My major concern with this approach is security since the password is stored in the “Users” table, even when it is encrypted.
I use a third-party service that takes cares of the authentication, however I do not know a service that provides this for the moment. I know you can use Google / Facebook / Github / … signin, but this requires to the user to have an account on one of those platforms.
