I am somewhere in the middle of developing a web app and am stuck because of skill gap.
I paid someone to build a Laravel based website that has crap looking UI but good functionality. (its not only the UI though that I want to turn it over).
The website basically stores user profiles along with attachments, and paying users could access those profiles based on custom business rules.
(hence – pricing plans, payment gateway – fair enough for a backend). And on top it will have blogs, static pages etc.
Now I want to take it forward but I need full / “better than Laravel” control over the source (I may rather not pay someone but do it myself. Exceptions could be things like security, scaling etc where I can selectively use my budget to hire experts).
I am a native mobile dev but not much into web and do not have momentum to learn it till the last bit – at this stage at least. Building with Laravel was not a decision I made, and now that this dev is no more with me, I do not know whether to take it forward as is, turn it around, and how.
Is there a way to use some high level website builder tool that will make the whole thing some bunch of configurations?
I am familiar with wordpress but not the underlying php stuff. Also, as I already said, this has quite some data processing requirements so mere web-templates won’t work.
Thanks all for your support and time…
