Dynamic web pages can provide an excellent user experience; they update in response to user interaction without reloading whole pages from the server. Single Page Apps exploit this to the utmost.
However Single Page Apps usually require the app to be designed from the start around whichever libraries (both client-side and server-side) are being used. But for a new Django developer who’s just finished a Django tutorial, it’s hard to see how that kind of functionality can be achieved without throwing out Django’s view and template system entirely.
This talk covers using Intercooler to add dynamic functionality to a Django app, as well as a number of apps that make using Intercooler with Django even easier.
