Transitional web apps


Another talk by Rich Harris where he contrasts Traditional and SPA web applications, and presents a 3rd option which is the best of both worlds – Transitional Apps.

Transitional apps basically have all the green checks from both columns.

This all might be true for Javascript, but for Elm, and I don’t think any of the negatives apply – Elm apps don’t crash, obviously don’t have too much JS, and initial page load is good as Elm compiles down to very small bundle sizes – not as good as Svelte, but good enough for all but the largest web applications.
