There has been a rise in the use of client-side frameworks. These provide server-side-like coding patterns such as MVC, template views, reusable components, form validation and more. AngularJS is probably the best known and most popular but it’s not the only solution. Unlike server-side frameworks, the client-side alternatives must run on a modern JavaScript-enabled browser. Without JavaScript, they fail. TIDAL is a typical case; if JavaScript isn’t available, the user sees a blank page. There is no content, no error and no sign-up form.
