@edwardloveall What are your thoughts about the UX improvements that rich JS apps have over server-rendered apps with JS sprinkles?
@CodingItWrong I think most server-rendered+JS sprinkles apps have better UX than rich JS apps. JS apps _could_ improve the UX (and a few do) but the effort required is massive. Devs have to replace so much of the browser: system conventions, accessibility, history state management, error handling, etc.
@CodingItWrong Yeah that's cool 👍️ To each their own 🙂
I've made rich JS apps and SRP only apps and most things in between. I've arrived at this because, while there are nice things about making a rich JS app (JS at all/most layers, smooth page transitions, a potentially more integrated UX, huge ecosystem for support) the downsides always outweigh the upsides.
Even with all that rich JS can be the right choice. But I also see so many CRUD apps where people reached for JS for no benefit.
