Multiple questions: CMS integration, devs, and Foundation


Sep 15th, 2023 08:39 PM

Hi All, I'm investigating the framework options for our SAAS platform project. WAVE is certainly the leading option, but I have a few questions.

I wanted to check whether there are integrations for a basic CMS and page builder (a slightly simplified version of tails ideally) for tenant sites?

Also, is there a place to recruit devs to support our team on using WAVE?

Also, I have read that FOUNDATION is expected for end of this year, since we are nearing that time, can you advise whether it would be better to wait for FOUNDATION?

Hi there,

Yes, Wave sounds like a great option for your use-case.

Regarding the website builder functionality, I don't think that there is such of a Laravel package available out of the box. This sounds like you might have to build this as a custom feature. I've seen this package here but it does not seem to be actively maintained so it might not be a good fit:

A good place to find Laravel devs is either the forum here, or the Larajobs website.

Regarding Foundation, I think that there isn't an exact ETA on when this would be released and there might be some delays.

Hope that this helps!

Thanks Bobby, the pagebuilder is overkill for our needs as the vast majority of options will be predefined in either the basic page styling options or the pre-existing component designs, so it may be easier to build a custom solution to predefine the components then only allow media and content editing. Hard to find a package with this level of simplicity.

That's a problem about Foundation as we would obviously prefer the next generation with additional OOB integrated features rather than have to recreate at a later stage.

Many thanks for the response and the Larajobs link, appreciated.
