my goal is to build a small flat renting portal (two locations, 7 flats total, semiautomatic booking system)… nothing that requires scalability or anything too fancy but I'm facing three challenges:
- I would love to use Clojurescript for the frontend.
- My non-techy client must be able to maintain the site without constant intervention from my side. So I need some kind of CMS in order to let him add pictures to galleries, update prices and tweak text (graphical editor is a requirement). I would be ok with implementing part of this myself.
- I have to tap into a google calendar in order to check the availability of the apartments (only reading access)… this can only sensibly be done within the backend I suppose.
- For the backend I am limited to the use of PHP since this will have to run on a shared hosting service and node.js simply won't work the way I hoped it would.
Do you have any ideas as to where I might go for here? Does anyone have experience using Clojurescript in tandem with a PHP-based backend? Would you deem headless WordPress a viable option for my use case?
(Please tell me if I'D better ask my question on another site like stachoverflow)
