I’m new to Bubble and playing around with this idea as well. It would make me insanely happy if they were strongly integrated…or the same tool
I’m sure you could power a Webflow site somehow with a Bubble app and make it do some impressive things if you are able to code. But if you can already code I’m not sure if there would be much of a point in trying to create a hybrid ‘Bubble / Webflow’ app.
If you are ‘low code/no code’ which I am, initial impression is not looking suuuper smooth.
Have been playing with the Webflow API for a few days and found out that when you post a new CMS collection item into Webflow for the time being you can’t include any of its reference fields. Webflow API apparently does not support it. That feels very limiting. Found a workaround by sending the reference field after creation using ‘patch’. I’m not really sure why they would allow that and not with post. But it works. You also cannot create new CMS collections via the API. This was my first time really trying to work with an API so take that with a grain of salt. I’m going to continue playing around.
Password protecting pages or CMS collections for specific users is not possible with Webflow. You can only set one shared password for all. You can have user specific passwords with other services but those don’t seem very flexible or easy to automate/manage through a Bubble app. All that is already super simple to handle in Bubble if you publish everything with Bubble.
I’ll definitely use Webflow for my app’s actual website and content/blog etc, but am really not sure about the rest yet…
The only reason I want to use Webflow is that I strongly prefer it as a design tool. That being said, the interfaces you can design with Bubble are like haute couture compared to what can be made with similar ‘no code’ tools like Knack.
