Developers started using Single Page Applications, or SPAs, in 2003, and it has grown steadily over time. With SPAs, web browsers can run application logic, communicate with web servers, and better display certain user interfaces. It has also allowed users to navigate web pages on wireless gadgets in a new and improved way.
Some of the more popular SPA examples are LinkedIn, Airbnb, Facebook, Gmail, and other large online services. The use of SPAs in websites allows for the use of web pages without reloading, resulting in a more dynamic experience.
Single Page Applications’ other benefits are longer battery times on devices, quicker navigation, better caching, and ease in maintenance and development. The use of DHTMLX Suite to build SPAs also brings a lot of promise as it makes it easier for developers, providing a framework to serve as a starting point instead of building from scratch.
