Why I hate your Single Page App

Why can’t you just write server-side REST with the assumption (whether it’s actually true or not) you have no control over the client-side whatsoever? Then, whether you trust the “stability and long-term maintainability” of the client-side framework becomes moot. Pretend a new client is being written in a different framework every hour, on the hour. Pretend every user homebrewed his own private client.

What semantics are in your server-side HTML that isn’t derivable from the REST response? I can understand “rich formatting” of content like strong, emphasis, etc., but hopefully not tables or lists, eh?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
