What is SPA Technology?
A single-page application is an app that works inside a browser and does not require page reloading during use. Single-page sites help keep the user in one, comfortable web space where content is presented to the user in a simple, easy and workable fashion.
This is an essential aspect while building a website for your organization, that is still in its nascent stages of growth. Since SPAs reload only particular pieces of content, they bring with them the massive advantage of a lighter server payload. This cuts down the considerable backend load that the server otherwise takes in multiple page applications wherein it is built in static HTML and is supported by several technologies such as PHP, Ruby, and Python.
In SPA development, one can reuse the same backend code from a web-based app for mobile app development as well. SPAs offer a fluid experience in that they look and feel more like an app than a static website. SPA’s design or functionality is adaptive to mobile devices as well.
SPAs can operate even when they are offline as they can cache to any local storage with dispatch. SPA stores the data received during a request to the server. The app can use this data, so there is no need to be online at all times to operate.
Even in multiple page applications (MPAs) such as Amazon, there are specific portions that are a single page in structure and form. Each time you search for an item, place your order, or simply visit your cart or follow some of the hot deals, you are directed to a new page, which exists and performs functions as a Single Page Application. This way, the response time for the MPA is reduced significantly. MPAs infuse the use of backward and forward buttons in the browser while SPAs are not equipped with that function. Visiting the previous state of your web application is thus more comfortable with an MPA, thus enabling quicker navigation.
Without the perfect plan, calculating the strengths and weaknesses of the project, preparing the feasibility study, development of software is pointless. Software Development Life Cycle begins with Requirement Analysis phase, where you and the team of SoftElegance will discuss the requirements of the software that you need to develop to achieve your business’ goal. The aim of the requirement analysis phase is to capture the detail of each requirement and to make sure everyone understands the scope of the work and how each requirement is going to be fulfilled.
Analysis is very important to proceed further to the next step. Technical consultant teams of SoftElegance put emphasis on understanding the business requirements. Based on this knowledge SoftElegance team suggests you about the best technology stack suited for your business model that best add value to your business, defines a solution to solve business challenges and offers an optimal development methodology, creates a development plan focusing on your business priorities. This stage is about analyzing the performance of the software at various stages and making notes on additional requirements.
The next stage of Software Development Life Cycle is the Design phase. During the design phase, developers and technical architects of SoftElegance start the high-level design of the software and system to be able to deliver each requirement of your business. The selected architectural design, defines all the components that needs to be developed, communications with third party services, user flows and database communications as well as front-end representations and behaviour of each components.
After the requirements and design activity is completed, the next stage is the implementation or development of the software. In this stage, developers of SoftElegance start coding according to the requirements and the design discussed with you in previous stages. Database admins create the necessary data in the database, front-end developers create the necessary interfaces and GUI to interact with the back-end all based on guidelines and procedures defined by you. Developers also write unit tests for each component to test the new code that they have written, review each other’s code, create builds and deploy software to an environment. This cycle of development is repeated until all requirements are met.
The testing stage assesses the software for errors and documents bugs if there are any. From starting stage of the project, SoftElegance development team focuses on implementing the right procedure and standards developed for the software are intended to meet your requirements and testing is carried out on each stage to make error-free software.
Once the software passes through all the stages without any issues, it is to undergo a maintenance process wherein it will be maintained and upgraded from time to time to adapt to changes.
