I was wondering what options there are, if I want to integrate an external API into a Webflow Site besides using JS to make all the calls.
The thing that I don’t like about using JS to make all the calls and loading the data into the front-end is that it’s always repeating code, which is not particularly clean.
Is there another option? Maybe a platform that offers easier API integration for static sites?
I know that there are many web scrapers out there, where you can create an API by selecting all the different elements that you want to request data from an external site programmatically. Maybe there is a software out there that does that for integration of API data, instead of extraction of data?
Another way I saw that enabled API integration without JS calls like that was the way of integration of data from sheetsu.com. They let you write the API endpoints into the HTML directly using attributes. Don’t know to what extent that feature works, but it’s an interesting idea.
So the TL;DR would be: Is there a no-code/low-code way of integrating an external APIs data into a static site/webflow page?
I looked around the internet for solutions like that for hours, but didn’t find anything.
Would love to hear what you think and if you would be interested in something like that as well.
I wish you all the best,
