Deep Dive: Web Development through JavaScript, Webflow and Continuous Deployment for Optimized Data Security and Control

In this meeting, the State Changers discussed multiple topics. One of the participants expressed concern about the security and data compliance of third-party links used in Webflow, especially when dealing with sensitive components like calendar features. They wondered if these external URLs stored any user data. In response, another participant explained using JS deliver, a source for JavaScript components, and the process understanding data transactions with interfaces like Xano.

The process of downloading additional code is clarified, emphasizing that the data downloaded is mostly "pulling", not "pushing", and it's possible to see what's pushing, the requests it's making, and who it's sending it to via developer tools. The conversation also covers where data comes from, typically Webflow, js deliver, and script tag. The subsequent part of the discussion focused on the challenges that arise when using applications like Webflow not built on specific frameworks to create increasingly sophisticated web applications. It highlighted how applications like Wiz offer solutions by providing features to create interactivity, but complexity can increase. React's utility was then emphasized, particularly its built-in ability to start with a simple index HTML, and use JavaScript, specifically a pseudo language called JSX, to build an entire website. In this new generation approach, the hosting is centralized, all the code is under your control, and you can look at what the JavaScript will get exactly, inspecting the environment before it ever gets hosted. The last part of the meeting pivoted on explaining how GitHub works as a storing vault for data which can be deployed on a site via Netlify using continuous deployment. This process allows for local testing, and once committed into GitHub, the changes are deployed immediately on Netlify, which makes it very efficient for collaboration. No direct mention of "FlutterFlow," "Zapier," "Make," "Integromat," "Outseta," "Retool," "Bubble," "Adalo," "AppGyver," "AppSheet," "Comnoco," "Fastgen," "Firebase," "Google," "OAuth," "Stripe," "Twilio," "Airtable," "DraftBit," "Javascript," "Typescript," "Vue.js","lambda", "serverless", "State Change", "ScriptTag", "OpenAI", "AI21" were made in the discussion, although Javascript and script tag were referenced indirectly.
