The application I plan to build has two components
2)an exam conducting piece of software with a question bank.
Both of them will be on the same domain. Both of them would be sharing the same login system.
My first thought is to clone discourse and develop the rest of the application inside discourse. I need advice on this.
a)Do I need to keep them as separate rails applications? Can I make single large rails application? What should be my considerations if I can do it both ways?
b)I have a little experience in developing a few rails projects already. I only deployed 5 projects on Heroku so far. How would you recommend me hosting this? I know that discourse supports only docker installations.
I spent a couple of hours to install discourse locally on my Ubuntu system.
