I must say, nderground is quite cool. You have a valid use case for JavaScript.

Of course, I never intended to suggest that you can’t ever use a front-end framework, or that you can always use a server-based-only solution. However, far too many developers write SPA with Angular, Ember, etc., for no good reason other than that it’s a nice, shiny toy (hence, my reference to “magpie” developers). IMO, the majority of web apps can be more than adequately served by using web2py or Django or Rails or any of these traditional web solutions.

Even I can be attracted by shiny things, though. Mithril is an interesting framework I’m looking into…
