In this episode, we have Ben Cro­ker from PutY­ourLight­sOn to dis­cuss using Craft CMS 3 as an appli­ca­tion plat­form. We delve into defin­ing what we mean by a CMS vs. an appli­ca­tion plat­form, what a CMF is, and how these lines all blur togeth­er a bit.

We go on talk about how you can lever­age the pow­er­ful con­tent mod­el­ing and friend­ly con­tent author­ing GUI of Craft CMS 3 to devel­op your own cus­tom apps. We talk about how Yii2 is on par with Lar­avel in terms of being a robust appli­ca­tion frame, and how you can use as much or as lit­tle of Craft’s APIs as you like.

We round it out talk­ing about plu­g­in devel­op­ment, and using Craft CMS 3 as an API serv­er. Join us for a fun dis­cus­sion! (And yes, if you’re con­fused, I said Yii2” when I meant Vue2”… twice.)
