Webflow Data Source

Overview

When a data source powers your app, you can continuously update your app contents without having to republish it. It allows you to build a dynamic app that can create, read, update, and delete data. This doc covers connecting your app to Webflow as the data source.
When using Weblow as the data source for your Thunkable app, you’ll connect to a Webflow CMS or Content Management System collection. To connect your Webflow CMS to your Thunkable project, you have two options:
  • API Key
  • OAuth
