Forum OpenACS Development: Re: A data types package, Q-Forms now has a quasi-event handler web ui

Thanks Ben,

very interesting! When I hear the phrase, single-page app, I think of something like Facebook or Gmail or frameworks like React which are obviously very Javascript intensive. So I was curious to see how you would have designed something like this within the confines of the OpenACS.


I see. Thank you for asking.

Here, 'single page' is about reducing complexity that often accompanies an object-add, object-edit object-view multi-page paradigm in OpenACS.

An OpenACS package that manages multiple objects would be expected to have at least one page per object. A page provides context for end-user, so design is a matter of user experience preferences and the amount of complexity a developer wants to dedicate to a page.
