Middleware an application that is used to bridge the gap between other tools or services.
The application provides a method of communication and data management between services that would otherwise not be able to exchange data.
MiddleLink was built to solve the issue of integrating 3rd party services with Webflow. To date the only way to do this is to either, expose your API Key, embed a widget, use a 3rd party Webhook service or write a server side application using python, node.js, php or Firebase etc.
Whats wrong with Webhooks?
Webhooks are entirely server-side and don't interact with the browser, in addition to this webhooks can only establish a one-way communication between two servers. Due to these limitations webhooks are not the best solution when it comes to processing user inputted data from a website.
In addition to getting and sending data, MiddleLink allows you to link 3rd party authentication services like FireBase Auth (Other services TBA) on top of your endpoints. This powerful features lets you to securely query user data from 3rd party services.
