In recent years, the trend towards the use of single-page applications (SPAs) has increased. Well-known websites such as Facebook and Netflix have shown how SPAs can be used successfully. By moving the web application to the client site, server-client communication and thus server load can be reduced. For sites with high user numbers or a high level of interactivity in particular, SPAs are recommended. SPAs can however also be used for smaller sites and landing pages. Our specialists can advise you on the conception, planning, implementation and integration of your single-page application.
Optimizing your website, and in particular the loading time, is becoming increasingly important. The growth in the use of smartphones and tablets requires the ongoing adaptation and improvement of existing websites. The longer it takes for a page to load, the sooner users abandon it. Single-page applications enable this loading time to be reduced, since a complete page reload is no longer necessary. Only content that changes through user interactions on the site is dynamically reloaded. Our long experience with SPAs enables us to offer you an optimal solution for your project.
Single-page applications are supported by all current operating systems and end devices. With a responsive website design that adapts optimally to any screen size and any browser, the SPA is optimally matched to the end device. User experience and user satisfaction are thereby increased.
A decisive advantage of single-page web applications is their use of the web storage function for permanently storing data. Thanks to this client-side storage after initial loading, a permanent connection to the server is no longer required. Single-page applications can thus also be used in offline mode.
Single-page applications (SPAs) or single-page web applications are made up of as few files as possible, known as bundles. When the web page is called up, only the content that is immediately needed is loaded once. Normally this initial loading takes a little longer than with classic websites, since the entire framework must be loaded. All further content is then loaded dynamically in the background as required.
SPAs are used primarily for sites with high visitor numbers, high levels of interactivity and for offline applications. The advantage is that thanks to the distribution of resources between the client and server, loading time optimization is achieved. Additionally, thanks to the initial, one-off load of all the data, one-pagers can also be used in offline mode.
An SPA offers many advantages over classic websites. At the same time, however, single-page applications are not recommended or beneficial in every situation. If your website is complex and wide-ranging, a classic (multi-page) structure is preferable. It is also worth remembering that search engine optimization for single-page applications is considerably more involved, since the bots of the search engines have difficulties with the indexing. As a result, the ranking of SPAs often tends to be somewhat lower. If a single-page application is not the right choice for you and your requirements, Anexia is also an experienced partner for classic web development. Not sure whether an SPA is the right choice?
