Ability for server side processing via an API

Webflow has tackled every single UX problem perfectly. There is just one missing. The ability to interact with API's and use the data in the spoiled way we use everything else in Webflow.

Imagine running code on AWS Lambda and interacting with it from Webflow. Or any already available API. Twilio, Mailchimp etc

If someone can pull this off, it's Webflow.

    Server side code would be phenomenal. They already run on AWS. Just the ability to utilize Lambda functions to run behind the scenes would open up sooooo many doors. Especially for larger scaled teams that require deeper functionality and custom integration. Even Wix has this apparently. Come on Webflowwwww 🥳

    I can do this with a bunch of GET and POST requests, but it makes page loading super slow. There has to be a better way!

    That would be such a life saver. Just pulling content from our API and rendering pages in webflow with that data would make a huge difference (and remove the need to nginx reverse proxy two sites)
