  • A Single Page Application (SPA) is a different way of building HTML 5 applications from traditional Web page development. Instead of spreading the functionality of your Web applications across a collection of separate Web pages with hyperlinks between them, you instead define a single root page that the user lands on and never leaves as long as they are working with your application. You define client-side logic that switches out the data and chunks of content within tha...See More

This article makes two assumptions. First, you are familiar with jQuery and second, you are familiar with jQuery UI. If ...See More
