While traditional web app development is more commonly used, single-page application (SPA) is the new trend. SPA is a web application or website in which the existing web page is rewritten dynamically with new data from the web server when the user interacts with it. This is unlike the default method used in traditional web apps where the browser loads entire new pages. The purpose is faster transition that gives the feel of a native app to the website user.
Web application building
Most businesses use traditional web applications or single page web applications (SPA) for their online presence. There are no concrete pros or cons for either traditional or SPA. A judicious combination can help businesses benefit from the advantages that each provides. Here are some points to consider:
|Traditional Web Applications||Single Page Applications|
|Application logic is performed on the server||Most of the user interface logic is performed on web browser|
|Need greater architecture and security expertise|
|Frequent updates required|
SPA frameworks are often preferred for a better and richer user experience. However, you should carefully compare an SPA deliverable with the difficulties of configuring automated build and deploy processes. A traditional web approach is less complicated in this regard. Besides, given the need to keep SPAs updated and upgraded, businesses may experience what is referred to as ‘higher churn,’ where users may stop using particular apps because they are out of date.
Considering professional assistance
Given the technical details involved in web application development, it makes sense to reach out to professionals. Here are some benefits you can get from professional web application development:
