Exploring Webflow Asset Uploads and Potential Integration with DigitalOcean CDN

The State Changers meeting revolved around discussions concerning the uploading of assets to Webflow, specifically JavaScript (JS) files.

The team had a debate over this subject, considering different areas in Webflow where the uploading could occur, such as the project view or assets section. There was uncertainty about whether such a process is allowed, given the restrictions on JS files. One suggestion was to upload the item to the CMS as a dummy, then grab the URL that Webflow hosts. There were also mentions of other Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) that could be used, with Amazon's service brought up as an alternative to get better performance. Furthermore, JS Deliver was discussed, a tool used to import NPM packages as script tags. However, it was clarified that this wouldn't work for simply uploading the JS file. As a feasible and cost-effective solution, one participant recommended using DigitalOcean's "Spaces", which is similar to Amazon's S3 but with a built-in CDN. This service offers easy usage, large transfer capacities, and it's a platform that's already utilized by the team for hosting video contents on State Change. Finally, the discussion hinted towards the possibility of integrating these CDN services directly into their product, 'Grip tag', for performance improvements. This idea was positively received as a potential feature request. The meeting ended with a check on what additional support could be provided to the team members.
