Single Page Applications (SPAs) have gained popularity due to their responsiveness, interactivity, and enhanced development experience. However, they often fall short in terms of SEO, performance, and user experience. Modern server rendering frameworks have been crafted to overcome these shortcomings, offering a range of optimisations.
