My question is more conceptual than technical;
I have a website who have two big topics, on is purely editorial (pages, articles, faq, ...), the other is basically a comparator based on user input with account, sending contracts by mail and by post, reminders, signatures, etc etc. The business logic is quite complex.
I started doing everything in laravel + nova admin but I quickly felt frustrated for the cms part, as I'm used to Craft, and everything where Craft is good at is a pain and takes time to recreate in nova (the tool is an admin that has some cms capabilities, but is really far form Craft). So I ended up with two applications, Craft for content editing, and Laravel + nova for the custom part.
Is it a good idea ? Or should I put custom parts in custom craft plugins ? Can I do eveything, I guess like yii apps ?
In my current situation, I fear that I will end up with more complexity, making the two applications communicate seamlessly will take time, maybe mix authentifications,... In the other hand, I have the impression to really own the codebase and database with a barebone laravel app, than putting everything into Craft, as good as he is. But it's maybe a noob assumption.
What in your experience is the best way to go ?
Thanks for your inputs !
