I am working on a database API that will integrate with Bootstrap Studio. Basically it will allow frontend access using JS to a database API to populate items like Blogs and such. I’ll keep you posted on progress and provide a GitHub link when the work becomes functional. My hope is Bootstrap Studio devs will find the concept useful and perhaps do something similar.
I don’t really think that it’s a good idea since there’s already tons of ready to use APIs altho i ish BSS Devs implement something to the stack of features of BSS in the future which would allow to have own database for content etc and being fully integrated with BSS etc
My entire point was that there’s already tons of available apis for backend solutions which you can easily integrate with front end, making another one wont change anything until you wont change something inside BSS to make it attractive.
In conclusion, you’re basically “wasting” your time for something that won’t change anything honestly unless youre planning to make something else then im backing my words
I mean using JS to call an CRUD API on a server other than what BSS is being hosted on using XMLHttpRequest GET/POST. JS can then populate the page as needs. So, sort of the other way around. BSS managing the blog using JS and an external database API.
Thanks for this. Strapi is quite different than what I’m doing. My API will allow one to use BSS hosting and JS to access an external database API. It will be a solution for static hosting and front-end data access.
On my last app i wrote the restapi on php and called it via the js fetch() method. So i dont need external cms but for local testing xampp installed or ignore cors policy on server side. Idea is good but has some restrictions.
The 5-site limit of BSS hosting is a problem for me as I want to start an agency. https://www.netlify.com and https://heroku.com can host static sites for free. Heroku will even host dynamic sites for free too.
