Single Web Applications
Code for most web sites mostly runs on the server. When a user clicks on a link, the site reacts slowly because the browser sends information to the server and the server sends it back again before displaying the results. With near universal availability of capable browsers and powerful hardware, the single page web application (SPA) pushes most of the code to the browser, giving users immediate results, whether they're surfing at their desk or using a phone app.
This book aims to give a practical guide to developing and scaling a Ruby Rails application with a focus on mobile devices and the issues with using a Single Page Application (SPA). Websites are getting more and more traffic from mobiles devices that it has become important to prioritise development to mobilise your web page, even for sites which also have native apps.
DESCRIPTION Single page web applications (SPAs) are the next step in the development of web-based software, delivering the sleekness and fluidity of a native desktop application in a browser. SPA development requires knowledge of new development concepts and the mastery of new technologies that support these more complex applications. Fortunately, learning how to build SPAs doesn't have to be an overwhelming experience! SPA Design and Architecture: Understanding Single Page Web Applications helps developers take the leap from traditional web applications to SPAs.
