I want to use SS to develop a business app (a small ERP/CRM). Applications like PeopleSoft, Oracle Financials, SAP, OpenBravo, etc.
As you may know, these apps usually rely on showing data in tables or grids to the user.

I couldn't find an example on hot to render data as DOM does or as the Drupal Views module does. Is there any example around?

Also, I've found the backend interface more suitable to what I need. Can I develop for the backend and use it as a frontend for my users?

Sorry about these questions, but I'm a developer looking for a framework, trying to leave in-house coding nightmare.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, Swaiba.

Thank you very much for your advice.
What confuses me the most is:

I see in the example they've developed CMS pages and that's fine. But I don't see any on the front end. So, it is Ok to develop for the CMS?

What about branding the CMS theme?

Thank you in advance!
