A single page application is a kind of a web app or site that interacts dynamically with the user rewriting the present page instead of loading entire new pages from a server.
For web app developers, it is essential to pick a dynamic and powerful framework in order to create a single page app. The chosen framework should be able to deal with complicated architectures involved in creating various web apps to make them interactive.
Here, we have listed the five most popular frameworks that are best suited for developing single page apps:
- 2. Meteor.js
Angular.js can transfer the entire content to the browser from the server directly, loading all the pages at one time. Once the pages are loaded, they do not reload after clicking upon the link. Instead of this, the sections that are within the page are immediately updated. This framework enables fast loading of web pages because the load on the server is less. This framework’s two-way data binding feature lightens the burden of writing innumerable codes.
Further, AngularJS works on the MVC architecture as well.
Ember.js is an open-source framework which follows a widget-based approach known as the Ember components. The templates that include Handlebars undergo automatic updates with the use of minimal coding whenever there is any change in the data. LinkedIn, Netflix, Microsoft, and Live are some of the popular users of Ember.js. A desktop app, Apple Music, too, uses this framework. Furthermore, Ember.js follows the Convention over Configuration (CoC) model and works on the MVVM pattern. This framework’s data library is super resourceful.
We witness many frameworks enter the market every now and then with unique architecture but only a few manage to stick around. Each framework has a different purpose. Some are suited for certain types of apps and some are adjustable enough to handle anything. It is highly advised to research thoroughly before selecting the appropriate framework.
