MPAs and SPAs differ primarily by how they distribute operational logic between the server and browser. When a user loads an MPA page, the full page is downloaded from the server. With SPAs though, resources are only loaded from the browser after the initial load. What does this difference tell entrepreneurs looking for the best approach to building a web app?
Multi-page applications are great for projects that handle lots of data and won’t feature lots of interactive elements on their web pages. MPAs allow for unlimited scalability and are optimised in a traditional way. If the project requires a complex structure with lots of categories, subcategories, and pages, and you need all URLs to be easily distinguished, shared, and optimised, then an MPA is your best choice.
In turn, single-page applications are a great fit for projects that are heavily interactive. If your top priority is how quickly users can interact with different sections of the app, then SPAs are better. This approach has its problems but all of them are fixable — all you need is an expert team that uses the right tools and tricks to make the app work according to your expectations and in sync with your business objectives.
At MadAppGang, we think single-page application frameworks are among the hottest development trends. We build efficient, maintainable, and SEO-friendly single-page applications with React. By layering the SPA’s code to separate data and user interfaces, we ensure smooth collaboration between developers and designers, and facilitate development and testing.
