WordPress starter theme with Laravel Blade components and templates, Tailwind CSS, and a modern development workflowProject mention: Ask HN: WordPress vs. Django/Flask? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-16
Using Django or Flask might be overkill for what you're trying to do. I suggest you to stick with WordPress, but check out the Sage/root style over at https://roots.io/sage.
It's not the classic WordPress; it's a modern, more secure version.
Also only use plugins when you absolutely have to, and if you do, stick with the pros (i.e. Gravityforms).
I've used WP alot (more than 1000s of websites) and I'm also using Python with Flask and FastAPI (but never used Django).

So far in this current project, I added CMB2 as a composer dependency, and that's done just enough to take away the headache of adding custom metaboxes and input fields to different pages. I feel like maybe if I just get myself the most basic toolkit to handle these common tasks, and a boilerplate to start me off with some structure, I may be able to wrap my mind around the way WP expects things to be added and registered the more I work with it.

Not sure I understand what you want, but it sounds like you want to build your own admin pages in the same style as WordPress uses. If that's the case then I used https://github.com/bueltge/wordpress-admin-style a couple of years ago, and it showed a load of admin components, and the HTML used to build them with the classes WordPress uses for it's pages, so my admin pages look exactly the same as the WordPress core ones.
