Single page apps suck links and resources

Single page apps built with Javascript are the super hyped rage these days. This design goes against all of the hard learned lessons of the past 30 years.

The main reason SPA’s suck is networks are unreliable and SPA require large amounts of Javascript to be transferred to a users device. Most devices are mobile these days. If a users has a slow connection the app will take for ever to load or timeout and not load at all.

Another reason SPA’s suck is they assume all users are using the latest greatest highest powered device. This leaves out more than half the planet and is a very arrogant approach basically saying you are not important to us because you are poor and have a crappy device and slow connection go elsewhere you peasant.

I’ll post links here as I get time. The first one is an excellent piece covering much of why SPA’s are not a good choice.

Why you should not build your start-up as Single-Page Application?
