Best Practice? Integrating a Webflow Design with a Site Framework


#1

We love the Webflow design tool, but we are struggling with the best way to take a design and then integrate it into a site framework, which uses templates and has its own CMS.

Looking at a rendered site page, you can see tag ids and classes defined that clearly are not what was produced in web flow. In addition, we cannot be sure if the html rendering done by the framework might break the css.

I'm looking for some sanity that would suggest, if you are developing a Webflow design for whatever site framework, this (or these are the ways to do so.

Thank you,

the best way to take a design and then integrate it into a site framework, which uses templates and has its own CMS.

For something like WordPress, what you can do is export the code from the WF (Webflow) Designer Tool, then have a Dev place in dynamic code into divs where it is appropriate.

html rendering done by the framework might break the css

The WF framework CSS "w-" in all the class names. Make sure that none of your CMS CSS has class names that are similar.

Hope this helps smile

Following this line of thinking...is it possible to pull in a rendered page from the framework, including its styles and then design the responsive functionality around that? Thank you.
