Build a Frontapp Plugin With Bubble?

Hi There,

We use Frontapp system to manage our emails and they provide a way to build plugins for their app. http://dev.frontapp.com/plugin.html#creating-a-plugin

From their site:

You can use any web framework or library you wish: it’s just a web page that can communicate with Front. It has to be hosted on your servers and include our library. Just add:
<script src="https://dl.frontapp.com/libs/frontjs.min.js"></script>

Does anyone know if it would be possible to do something like this (create the plugin) with bubble?

Thanks

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Wondering if Bubble.is could be used to create plugins for 3rd party apps like Frontapp?

You may be able to do this with some HTML elements to run some code, but that sounds tedious. not sure Bubble is ready for this yet. How technical are you?

Hi Emmanual,

I’m pretty technical. All the code is in their API so it seems that it could be done. Just wondering if you could point me in the right direction to even get something minimal going as a test. I’m not familiar with running code with html elements in Bubble.

Well it’s not what it’s designed for, but if you add things between script tags you’re in familiar territories

Touchdown!

This is a game changer for me. I realized at this point I don’t need it to interact with Frontapp (this can come later), rather just needed access to my Bubble app in the Frontapp plugin (right) panel.

This is very easy to do, just add <script src="https://dl.frontapp.com/libs/frontjs.min.js"></script> to the Bubble app index page header, and then enter the link to the Bubble app in the Frontapp plugin settings and presto!
