Does my BowTie project have to be a static site?

Not exactly. BowTie is designed for static sites and single page javascript applications. We include Jekyll by default, and support any other static site generator. But, you can include webhooks and backends in your BowTie project to connect it to another dynamic app - allowing your BowTie project to serve as a static frontend for that app. Read on for more info.

Add the location of your backend API to the ‘Backend’ settings of the your BowTie dashboard. Learn more about working with backend applications in rails.  

If you’d like more technical information on backends, read our docs.
