How to create a real single-page application


#1

Hello community,

first i want to clarify the difference between a one pager (or landing page) and a real single-page application (SPA). So this is how wikipedia defines a SPA (i am currently trying to build one): "A SPA is a web application or web site that fits on a single web page with the goal of providing a user experience similar to that of a desktop application. In an SPA, either all necessary code – HTML, JavaScript, and CSS – is retrieved with a single page load, or the appropriate resources are dynamically loaded and added to the page as necessary, usually in response to user actions."

So far so good - i know that webflow is best for typical web pages but i want to push things forward and will use it in a business environment. Altough it´s perfect for prototyping and designing stuff, i furthermore want to export a useful artefact to my developers. At least i want to provide a simple html/css frame where the programmer can fit their dynamic content. But where should i start and end my work? There is no such thing like dynamics divs or sections which completly can change their content ..

So by definition i am dealing with a single web page which includes a sticky sidebar on the left an a dynamic header which changes it´s behavior depending on the current content. In addition it should be possibly to realize something like a master detail view like we know from mail clients.

Any tips, help or suggestions? I really appreciate it!

It's not very easy to understand what you're after. If you're going to design the HTML elements, style them, add interactions, and hand over the code to a developer for the web app part, everything is possible, I'd say.

I'm a bit confused here. You post jumps around quite a bit
and it's difficult to figure what you are asking...

So...
What's the actual question ?

You may want to try https://bubble.is/ its not as intuitive as Webflow but it sounds like it would solve your problem!
