The insight is that JavaScript is a broken language that will never be fixed. Using it so much for front-end development is foolhardy.

The insight is that most developers do not need to write SPA; they’re simply jumping onto the bandwagon for no good reason.

I’ve written normal web applications using web2py/Python and Beego/Go, and I’ve never seen any need to consider SPA. (If and when I do, I shall use Amber, not JavaScript.)

The solution is to use SPA where appropriate and otherwise continue writing normal web applications. Why does every web application in the world need to be SPA? In most instances, users just don’t care.
