Hey guys! I have a project that I am working on, and so far I have done it all in WordPress… I want to get away from that and do it all fresh and new from scratch so I can add additional features and stuff like that.
A little background on me:
So The idea is to allow high school or younger softball players to build a profile and share their stats (entered manually) and highlights with college recruiters or really anyone. They will be able to go in and add all of the things that you might expect… height, weight, batting average, and things of the sort.
Here is an example of the site that I created for my client in WordPress using the Ultimate Member plugin. The site is working for the client for now, but I would like to be able to add and my own features, share button, and other things that are not offered through the plugin.
So, here lies my problem… I am not sure how to do it, but I am willing to learn! I think I can somewhat make the frontend using simple html and css, but the backend is a different animal. I had a friend suggest to use react as a frontend framework and ruby on rails for the backend, but I have no clue how to tie them together (I have no clue how to use react or ruby in the first place).
Is there any way I can get an outline or maybe a pathway for what I need to learn? I am kinda lost here with no direction. Any help is greatly appreciated!
