Is creating an entirely new app possible in Oscar or must an Oscar app be forked?

Is it possible to have a standalone app with Oscar? For example, let's say I want to have a bike shop with a typical ecommerce setup and then an app that allows users to build their bike and then purchase the components from the Oscar shop/checkout/basket. 

I was able to create an app and display the template, but I'm unable to get my Oscar base.html and nav_primary.html to properly extend to my new standalone app template. What would be the right way to do this?

Turns out I just had to extend one of the layout templates to get my base and nav loaded. Would like to hear from others if my original question is possible though, if there are any issues having a completely separate app and tying it into oscar....or if I have to fork an existing oscar app to do this?

Oscar is just a collection of Django apps - there's nothing to prevent you adding your own additional apps to expose more functionality to the set that Oscar ships with.
