npoint.io is a lightweight data store for your app or prototype.
Save FAQ answers, customer stories, configuration data, or anything else that will fit in a JSON blob. Then access your data directly via API.
Once your app is live, come back later to edit your saved JSON without having to redeploy. Or share a login with a friend so they can help you experiment! Features like schmema validation and locking mean you can make these changes confidently, without breaking your app.
Contributions are welcome!
Please open an issue to discuss proposed changes, rather than opening a pull request directly.

The one piece of the app that won't work is password-reset emails, which go through a Sendgrid account. I recommend deleting the code for this and handling it yourself.
