I fell for the title and had a good chuckle! It took me a few seconds to realize what was happening. Thanks for sharing!
In defense of the multipage application running on the same back end
I have JS and cookies disabled by default, took some more clicks to verify the purpose :)
The page’s author has confirmed in an email reply that it was indeed a joke.
And apparently I was fooled (fool?) enough to write him an email, letting him know that he made a good argument about SPA’s, although “not the one he intended”. :) – The joke was on me.
Usually I just give up, but given I was interested in this topic I’ve opened it in a “pure untainted” Firefox profile, and to my surprise, to the same outcome.
Perhaps the author wrote that page in relation to the recently released Changelog JS Party podcast Were SPAs a big mistake?.
Defense hasn’t loaded yet. Did it load for you?
I suspect that’s why it has the satire tag.
It will not load if your faith in the future of single-page applications isn’t strong enough. ;)
This article requires at least 8gb of available RAM to load.
I was able to interact with the components of the page that had loaded, so that’s a plus.
ninja TLD ? Do pirate or cowboy TLD exists too ?
No, but if you have money you can create them.
Write code with React + TSX, we can statically verify the identifier referenced. But write code in htmx / jquery, we lose the support of static type checking ( from Microsoft )
