In this episode, we have Ben Croker from PutYourLightsOn to discuss using Craft CMS3 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 CMS3 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 CMS3 as an API server. Join us for a fun discussion! (And yes, if you’re confused, I said “Yii2” when I meant “Vue2”… twice.)
