The State Changers meeting focused mainly on the use of Webflow push, with emphasis on its relationship with the invocation process and how to optimize its use. The participants explored different scenarios, explaining that Webflow push ensures everything loads before invoking anything, highlighting its importance in controlling the load order.
They also discussed coding strategies, with main focus on placing code above Webflow push but invoking the load within Webflow push. This was found to be advantageous for pages with Click handlers that re-invoke functions. The meeting highlighted the importance of defining variables globally for maximum accessibility and explained the concept of function scoping.
Moreover, Node.js and browser context differences were also clarified and how to attach things to the window just in a browser and make everything simpler was discussed.
Towards the end of the meeting, the participants discussed strategies for API pulls from Xano and using the grid for parsing the API calls. They concluded that variables would be written on a global scale, above the Webflow push, and anything related to click handlers or grids would go on the push.
