The Udesly App is a web app that allows you to adapt your Webflow theme in order to be used with different CMSes.

Why?

Why you should use the Udesly App in the first place? 🤔

Webflow! an amazing design tool! 🎨 And we wanted to use Webflow everyday and in every kind of projects!

Every tool has its own pros, cons and best use cases, but we didn’t want to give up on Webflow at least as design tool when our customers needed a different CMS or needed to cover functionalities not yet available.

That’s why we built up the App, to use Webflow all the time… And also to not bother up our devs with boring task like writing html markup

It’s just a way to mix up different tools and get the best of all worlds! ✨

In this case, let’s be specific and let’s start our journey to use Webflow with Ghost.

Ghost?!

When I should use Ghost?!

Ghost is well suited if you want to have an efficient blog that you want to monetize using paid subscriptions. Ghost has a built-in portal that allows in few clicks to create gated contents area. Data is really secure and not hidden with css/js.

Ghost is open source and even if Ghost developers created Ghost(Pro) platform that it’s pretty cheap (starting from 9$/month), you can host Ghost wherever you want, AWS, DigitalOcean any hosting that supports NodeJS is suitable for Ghost. Your data, your choice!
