Use Bubble App As Widget On Wordpress?

Before I spend the time building, has anyone ever installed in widget fashion a Bubble application on Wordpress?

I am not super experienced in wordpress dev, but from my understanding I don’t see how something like this would be done.

The only way I can think of to do something like that would be dropping an iframe into the sites html…

Of course my thinking defaults to APIs. That’s where I’d start at least.

Besides those two faint possibilities, my idea of the landscape is, and I’m likely way off, is that Wordpress is an out of the box content management system. It comes prepackaged, in downloadable form, with a core set of features such as a admin dashboard with login, a blogging platform, asset management, stuff like that. Another core feature of the platform is installing widgets. Now I’m way off in la la land now, but I imagine it has something to do with compiling your widgets code by the wordpress backend.

Since bubble doesn’t expose source code, I don’t see how one would be able to reconcile it with a wordpress site if that was even possible. I also believe bubble is built on javascript, which after doing a cursory google search for wordpress and javascript, seems like it’s possible to reconcile the two (php and js) and burp out a website.

J&E’s possibly biggest project currently is opening up parts of bubble source code so that the more technically inclined of us can start building independent “plugins” for bubble, which might be a way, but my understanding would be that we’d have to write the widgets in actual code, then bubble would compile that as a plugin.

Again, I could be way off, no one else chimed in though so I thought I’d give it a shot.

@JustinC Did you find a good solution to include a Bubble app on a WordPress website?
