Every coin has two sides, and JavaScript-based applications are no exception from this. While they have multiple advantages, such as:

  • They provide rich site interactions
  • Fast website rendering after the initial page load
  • They are great for interactive web applications
  • You have a great selection of JavaScript frameworks and libraries you can choose from

They also come at a cost, and have their own disadvantages, such as:

  • If they are not implemented correctly, SEO can get a big hit
  • Initial load might require more time as often they require a heavy external library
  • Proper security can be an issue if you not take care of sensitive data and trust users with their inputs
  • Browser support should be taken into consideration, you may want to transpile your JavaScript down to an older version to make it work for older browsers
  • JS-based applications will not work if JavaScript is disabled in the user’s browser
