I discovered Webflow a few months ago and have been hooked ever since. I love how intuitive it is for someone familiar with the basics of web design. In the interest of pushing the envelope (and because of some requirements for a recent project I’m working on), I’d like to take it upon myself to see if it were possible to build a fully functional web app right in Webflow (maybe with the help of some external services).
After scouring the forums, I’ve found a few topics relating to people either using Webflow to prototype an application or to create the front end and exporting the code. It got me thinking if there were a way to build an app right in Webflow by perhaps connecting it with a backend service like Bubble.is. Ideally, the less code to write the better.
I know you can use forms in Webflow with Webhooks, but to the best of my knowledge this is a “one way” operation, i.e. you can’t take a response from the Webhook and put it in an element of the page. Is anyone aware of an easy way to create a dynamic app using APIs, maybe even with an external service if necessary? Does anyone have any experience building a web app with Webflow, or integrating it with Bubble/Firebase/etc?
