Single Page Application Development: Why Enterprises Should Consider

14 Oct 2021

Single-page applications (SPA) technology is today, the de facto standard for creating modern web applications. Because of the numerous benefits related to loading times and user experience, this tech is so popular. The major apps of the digital space that have already adopted this approach to web development include Facebook, Gmail, Google Maps, LinkedIn and Netflix.

If you have been contemplating whether the single-page application framework is right for your next project, do give this blog a read.

But first things first, let’s start with the basics.

What is a Single Page Application?

Commonly known as a SPA, is a JavaScript framework for distributing application functionality across the web. They help eliminate the web app complexity such as requests, responses and further swap only the requested content by the user and loads HTML data in chunks.

They are of two types;

  1. Content of multiple pages into one ‘shell’ page with the other
  2. Uses AJAX to retrieve content every time a user clicks a link, so only the content that changes will be updated on the page while the rest of the page remains the same.

Why is there a Need to Build a Single-Page Web App?

SPA is your go-to solution, if;

  • You’ve large-scale applications with a complex user interface and hundreds of content pages.
  • When the need is to satisfy a large and diverse audience using multiple devices.
  • When you need a fast-performance, dynamic data loading and better UX. site

What are the Essentials of Single Page Application Architecture?

Traditionally, all the content & data are sent to the browser from the server. However, with single-page applications;

  • Page rendering is transferred from the server to the client. This way, the page is dynamically written as opposed to an entire reload, thus accelerating page loading.
  • Once the initial page loads, no more HTML codes are required to be sent
  • And, when the user interacts with the page, the SPA sends data and markup requests, while the server sends across raw data that the browser provides with the updated UI.

When a user decides to visit any browser, the browser sends a request to the server. The server then responds with an HTML file. With SPA, on the first request itself, the server sends across an HTML file. JSON data is then sent on successive requests (AJAX) that come from the user.

What are Single Page Application Benefits?

So why has SPA attracted a lot of attention? Let’s find out.

  1. Enhanced User Experience
    SPAs do away with constantly reloading a web page, offering a native-like experience to users. The various components of the webpage like profile search, notification bar & inbox for instance encourage users to explore the app.
  2. Rapid Development
    Developers don’t need to test as many components as the code is reusable, leading to an accelerated development process.
  3. Performance
    All the resources are loaded within a single session. So, when using the app, only part of the data is updated. This way, the overall performance of the app is amplified.
  4. Cross-Platform Concept
    SPA demonstrates the cross-platform approach well. It works seamlessly across browsers and operating systems. Developers use a single codebase that runs across browsers. It helps deliver a great user experience since the adaptable app layout matches devices of every size.
  5. Easy Debugging
    The great technologies that power single-page app development make debugging within browser an effortless task. This is because single page apps are based on popular frameworks like Angular, React and Vue that have their own debugging tools.

Rishabh's SPA Development Approach

What are the Essentials of your SPA Development Process?

Listed below are three cornerstones for developing a high-quality single-page app: Team, Tools and Time. With their combination, we can help develop solutions that not only work seamlessly for ‘n’ number of visitors but attracts attention and investments as well.

Team

The most critical component of any development project is to ensure that single page application architecture is JavaScript-savvy. We recommend high competence in JS technologies as the key to launching a powerful app.

With the Rishabh team, you can expect the below mix of course (the specifics may vary depending on the requirements);

  • UI/UX designers
  • JavaScript engineers (front-end)
  • Back-end engineers for establishing a seamless connection between app’s interface and server
  • QA specialists
  • Project Managers

Tools and Technologies:

Listed below are the technologies and frameworks we utilize for SPA development.

  • JavaScript and its frameworks: We can either use pure JS, or combine it with React JS development, or try other JS frameworks like Angular.js. While every single page application framework has its specifics, pros, and cons, and we can choose the ones that work the best for your requirement.
  • AJAX: They are a necessary tool to launch a SPA. It is asynchronous JavaScript and XML that is responsible for an “unnoticeable” reload and enables data exchange between client and server.
  • Back-end technologies: From our experience, we recommend Node.js as a great option for SPA back-end development. Though, PHP and its frameworks work well, too. Having said that the development team has the option to choose the technologies of this choice.
  • Database: MySQL or MongoDB are usually the best fit while choosing database management systems. As part of the process, our specialists do compare the existing options and pick the one that has a strong familiarity with the customer’s engineering team.

Time:

The SPA development time depends completely on project requirements and expectations. The time for research and decision-making with features’ complexity are some of the essential factors that impact the final result.
