This section covers different ways to integrate your application to other apps on the web

Among Bubble's most powerful features is the ease with which you can connect to other applications and share data and commands.

Not only can you set up connections between Bubble applications, but you can also connect to third-party apps via the Bubble API and to SQL databases via the SQL Database Connector.

This article series dives into the different tools at your disposal and how to use them.

API - Set up outgoing and incoming connections to third-party applications

An API (Application Programming Interface) connection is a way for different applications to communicate and exchange information with each other. In Bubble, an API connection allows you to extend your app's functionality by integrating with external services.

By leveraging API connections, you can access and manipulate data, trigger actions, and access features from other platforms, greatly extending the feature set of your own app.
