Single Page Web Apps

Points to Remember when Creating Single Page Web Apps

Single Page Web applications also commonly known as SPAs have evolved to become the default benchmark in web app development. What makes it more fascinating and compelling is that the primary portion of the app runs on a single web page, and enhances the browser capabilities as well. What makes innovators more special is their endeavor to have apps run entirely in the browser itself.
Technically speaking, most of the web pages in existence are already more like SPAs, what points out the difference between a web page and a web app are the complexities present therein. A page probably turns into an app the moment workflows are integrated. More so when create, read, update and delete (CRUD) operations are incorporated. Whenever these tasks take place in the same page, you are undoubtedly working with a single page web application.

However, while creating single page web apps remember these points:

There are several aspects that need to be taken into consideration while creating a new app. However, what puts off most designers is the overwhelming web development landscape that puts a spanner in the works in the beginning itself. Though, the fact of the matter is that when one gets used to the tools and techniques, the process is not all that intimidating as it first appeared.
Take care while choosing an application framework, the most popular ones being:

  • Backbone which gives the basic structure to web apps by furnishing models with value binding and custom events.
  • CanJS, the JavaScript library helps turn complex apps into simple and fast working ones, thanks to custom tags and 2way binding.
  • SpineJS with its model view controller pattern forms the basis for JavaScript apps. This lightweight framework helps with approachable source code and enables great documentation.
  • BatmanJS was created to help save time and use less code as it was created with Rails development and scalability and enables structured directory hierarchy.
  • EmberJS also is great for writing dramatically less code thanks to automatically updating templates while data changes. It enhances productivity and favors designer ergonomics and helps do the job faster.
  • AngularJS is great for extending HTML vocabulary for the app you are creating. It helps create an expressive environment that is readable and can be developed faster. AngularJS reiterates the fact that HTML was never meant for dynamic views. This toolset is for constructing the framework that is ideal for your app and is extensible.
  • Meteor is the friendly open source platform for web apps which helps with an integrated Java
    Script stack extending from the database to screen. What’s more is the same code can be used for developing web, iOS and Android.

Choosing the correct framework is the smartest choice anyone can make for the app. To learn more about how to integrate the MVC design pattern talk to one of the experts at Infognana who are aces in creating single page web apps and more.
