SPAs are soaring in popularity, and it doesn’t appear that the train will be slowing down anytime soon. There are a few contenders to select from, and which you choose to go with could depend on a number of factors. If you’d like our advice, you can’t go wrong with Angular. Where there are now a sea of libraries and quasi-frameworks, Angular stands out as a full-fledged framework, complete with a very opinionated workflow, and a full suite of functionality out of the box. On top of that, it comes with an amazing set of tooling built to drive development and increase productivity. This opinionated, all-in-one philosophy makes Angular great for businesses looking to make the leap into an SPA offering, as it simplified developer on-boarding, loosens ties to external dependencies, and hardens the dev process with typed JS and documented, guided workflows, with many tasks automated via the tooling.
