This seems like a basic question to me but I have not been able to find an example or anything explaining this:
When in Lightning Experience, what replaces a Visualforce page that serves some custom business logic for an sObject? This is more than a component dropped onto the layout because the view needs the full screen real estate. I first thought this would be a lightning app, but there does not seem to be a way to link to these and they take you out of the Lightning Experience?
The only option I can find is to use a Visualforce page that uses lightning out to load my custom lightning component for my view. This gives my view the full screen and retains the sidebar and header from the Lightning Experience. It seems like there has to be a better way to do this that does not involve wrapping my components in VF pages, anyone have an idea?
