The API docs are making the following bold statement:
The Webflow CMS API is a HTTP JSON API and allows you to programmatically add, update, and delete items from the Webflow CMS, allowing you to connect external data sources to your Webflow sites.
I read the entire API and what it does is provide support to interact with collections internal to Webflow. Am I missing something? Can I have Webflow connect to another data source and use that data as if it was an internal collection?
I can see how I could use the API to create an off-band cron that queries the external data source and uses Webflow APIs to push it into Webflow, but this is not a good solution for so many reasons (stale data, data conflicts, the complexity associated with ordering inserts/deletes).
Appreciate your inputs.
