In 2023, Webflow released Devlink, a framework for doing realtime exports of Designer layouts into an external React development environment.

For React developers, this is a great way to get Webflow-level designer support in their React projects.

Webflow + React give you the UX layer. For business logic, data processing and database support, you'd extend that. Here are some popular approaches.

React Stacks

MERN Stack

  1. MongoDB: A NoSQL database.
  2. Express.js: A web application framework for Node.js.
  3. React: For building user interfaces.
  4. Node.js: A JavaScript runtime environment for server-side code.

JAMstack

  1. JavaScript: For handling all dynamic programming during the request/response cycle.
  2. APIs: For all server-side functions.
  3. Markup: For structuring the content.
  4. Often, React is used as the JavaScript library to build the frontend, along with static site generators like Gatsby or Next.js.

Full-Stack React with TypeScript

  1. Using React for the front-end.
  2. Node.js and Express.js for the backend, often with TypeScript for type safety and enhanced developer experience.
  3. A variety of databases can be used, like PostgreSQL, MySQL, or MongoDB.

React with GraphQL

  1. React for the frontend.
  2. GraphQL as a query language for APIs, often with Apollo Client for state management in React.
  3. Backend could be Node.js with Express.js, or other backend solutions that support GraphQL.

React with Firebase

  1. React for building the frontend.
  2. Firebase for backend services like authentication, real-time database, hosting, and storage.

React with Next.js

  1. React for building user interfaces.
  2. Next.js as a React framework for server-side rendering, static site generation, and building web applications with an emphasis on performance and SEO.

React with Serverless Architecture

  1. React for the frontend.
  2. Serverless functions (like AWS Lambda, Azure Functions) for backend logic.
  3. Integrating with various cloud services for databases, authentication, etc.
