Artisan Way:
MPA vs. SPA vs. Transitional

By Matt Lantz

Web Applications and website architectures have shifting trends, just
like frameworks and languages. As one group’s interest takes hold,
another group’s interest becomes the way of the past. However, the World
Wide Web’s core architecture has changed very little throughout its
life; That statement could trigger some people, so I’ll clarify it.
Since its inception, the core of the World Wide Web was simply you enter
an address in a browser, and you get content provided back. In cases
where you submitted information, the server consumed it and either
redirected you or provided direct content. Yet, regardless of this,
developers have consistently attempted to force the server-browser
relationship into some Frankenstein that either becomes a nightmare of
maintenance or becomes a pattern we all choose to leave in the past.
