SavaPage is a modern Single-Page Application (SPA).
Software technology is progressing at a rapid pace and sometimes it is hard to tell hype from sustainable value. Moreover, with the KISS Principle in mind, even sustainable tools are often just too heavy for simple technological challenges. SavaPage Development favors simple tooling for simple challenges. If simple tools are available off-the-shelf that's fine, if not, they will be “invented here”. We are a strong believer in continuous code refactoring. When new requirements trigger challenges that supersede simple tooling, refactoring to the next simplest solution is the way to go. At that point sustainable technology of the present is of course within scope.
SavaPage acts in a Web, Command-Line and Technical printing context. For now, the flexibility of our own framework outweighs the advantages of Spring, which are typical for large scale administrative applications.
Currently a home brew jQuery Mobile “framework” is used to implement a “somewhat” model-view-controller (MVC) architecture. A third-party framework should be lightweight and easily integrate with jQuery Mobile. The Backbone.js and Vue.js solutions seem good candidates and will be investigated in due time.
