Webflow is a great web design and development platform that allows designers to create custom websites without writing a single line of code. However, there are times when designers may need to add custom functionality to their Webflow sites that is not natively supported by the platform. This is where ChatGPT can come in handy.
ChatGPT is a powerful language model that can generate humanlike text based on a given prompt or context that’s become all the rage in the few months it’s been available to the public. This means that designers can use ChatGPT to write custom code for their Webflow sites without knowing how to code.
One of the advantages of using ChatGPT for custom code in Webflow is that it allows designers to quickly and easily add functionality to their sites without needing to spend time learning how to code or hunt down that elusive code snippet that someone already came up with somewhere on the web. Additionally, ChatGPT can help designers to save time and resources by generating code that is efficient and optimised for the task at hand.
Aside from the obvious it’s also a great time saver that might get you to the finish line quicker that trawling through the Webflow forums and Googling to find just the right snippet of code. And remember, you can feed to code snippets to adapt to your use case as well, the possibilities are endless and you might learn along the way.
We even asked ChatGPT to generate a list of prompts a Webflow user might want to use as an example that we could include in this post, and here they are:
It might not be the most creative AI out there, but there you go, some things ChatGPT thinks we Webflow users might want to as it.
These examples show how designers can use ChatGPT to generate custom code for their Webflow sites without needing to know how to code, by providing the model with a clear and detailed description of the desired functionality.
ChatGPT can be a valuable tool for Webflow designers and experts who need to add custom functionality to their sites. With its ability to code based on a given context or prompt, ChatGPT can help designers to write custom code for their Webflow sites with little to no coding knowledge or experience. This can save time, resources and help to increase the efficiency of the designer and the site.
As a final note, things are heating up in this space with Notion running a beta of its AI, also OpenAI based, that has similar functions and the ability to write code, the future is bring for low-code development and opening up more inroads for Webflow designers who don't want to bother learning to code but now being able to reap the benefits of custom code. You can sign up to the waitlist for the Notion AI beta here.
If code is all you're interested in and don't wanna use all the other great features of ChatGPT, why not give OpenAI's Codex a go, this guy is built to just help you with code and also in beta so head here to use OpenAI Codex. We'll let you in on a little secret, while ChatGPT can be overloaded and they are starting to trial a paid Pro version, you can skip the queue of waiting folks by just buying some API credits for Codex if you're gonna be using it a lot.
Update: We’ve been messing around with a Custom Webflow GPT, give it a try.
