custom links in lightning experience

We are in the process of migrating the SF classic application to Lightning experience using SLDS. 
In classic app, in left navigation bar, I have Custom Links on home tab under Useful Links section. These links connect to external application (something like In Lightning experience, by design I do not have left side bar. So I need to get those custom links on the home page. I read that I can create Custom object with links and then customize the home page by adding that object. Is that the correct approach? I am looking for some example or tutorial. 
Is it possible to use same links in classic and lightning? 
Hi Nuevo,
As per my understanding you dont need to create object you can use Custom Metadata Which almost similer to list type of  custom setting and it is very easy to manage. You can use this in both envirements.
I am familiar with using metadat and yes you are absolutely right, custom metadata can be used for this purpose. However my first problem is how to customize the Home page in Lightning experience(LEX)? How to add these Custom links to home page in LEX. Like I mentioned in my OP, the classic has these links and they are used in Home Page Componet. I am trying to figure out how to get the same functionality in LEX. LEX doe not support Left side bar.
