Can I host a full non-Shopify web app on Shopify?
We want to move the separate web app onto the Shopify site/domain. Is it possible to build a custom web app with Shopify? I know that you can do some sort of Rails liquid template coding for Shopify, but are there limitations? What about the back-end, would I just have to make REST API calls or can I use SQL database tables?
Either way it seems like I'd have to rewrite most of the app.
You can inject content to a normal Shopify theme template that potentially uses a PHP/MySQL App, but note that that is going to always be slow due to architecting how those kinds of apps interface.
