Are there any limits when using Webflow? Maybe payments, subscriptions, databases? Check this article and understand the different approach!
Since February 2021 we have worked on a new project, called Menta. It is a German startup that helps users to solve their problem with stress, self-love or sleep. The topic seems to be very popular nowadays, especially during covid-19 when people use to spend much more time at their homes than usual.
This is not the first startup project of the customer, what was a advantage as we could quickly start speaking the IT language and:
- Define a scope and build a team of UX, frontend developer, marketing,
- Jump to sprint, iterations & introduce project manager and product owner's responsibilities,
- Define first MVP points and "out of scope" functionalities for the MVP, that can be developed after we introduce early adopters into the project,
The article have found many people who are interested in extending Webflow functionalities
In the last article we created a simple integration between Webflow, Contentful and API Gateway.
The article have found many people who are interested in extending Webflow functionalities.
We have also received many e-mails regarding integrations and few questions on how to integrate Webflow with the simple post page. In the previous article I skipped it as I wanted to show the general approach on how to integrate these services together. However, the devil is in the detail, so the part number two is to quickly show how to design another page on Webflow (single post), fetch the data from Airtable and display a single post using API gateway/orchestration.
Webflow and a headless CMS - skip Webflow's CMS Collections. Does it make sense to yo?
How do I connect Contentful CMS (Prismic) with Webflow
There are no limits 🔥 We often use > 10 integrations at the same time and it really works. The performance is great! Tools that we use ar
- Relational and non-relational databases such as : MySQL, MongoDB,
- Temporary database used for cache - Redis,
- Webflow and Airtable connected directly, without CMS collections and Zapier,
- Custom Webhooks to do actions for us - register form, login form,
- Payment gateways connected directly via API - Stripe
- CRM systems as a User Data Management,
- Identity Access Management to authenticate users across the website with roles management,
- and many many others,
Check the process of creating a CRM system using Webflow
What is a CRM system?
There are a lot of CRM systems available. Does it make sens to create another one?
No, it doesn't, but What about situations where you need to integrate external services and you are not able to do it via Zapier and Webhooks?
Our customer was an exception, where we agreed to create a simple CRM system for their need. They wanted to create a CRM that integrates their internal database and allows to follow the process of import and export their units.
In this case study I am going to show you how to build a movie platform using Webflow, Airtable and Mongo
This time we're going to show you a video platform that allows users to register, watch free movies and then subscribe to a paid plan to have full access to premium videos and courses.
How do we use Webflow to manage views and external databases to manage the data? Check in this article.
We noticed that many of you ask a question How to connect Webflow to Airtable or How to connect to MySQL or Redis database.
To be honest, we never use CMS Collections from Webflow. It generates a bunch of problems and there are better solutions that works better.
This is the first post in our new blog and we're starting with a very practical post!
I know - you don't have time to follow our work every day and we're fine with that! You are probably not aware that since the beginning of this year, we have completely stopped developing bespoke software using Java and PHP. We have moved from custom software to no-code solutions.
