What is it?

SimpleSSR is a way to do server-side rendering at scale, while reducing operational complexity and decreasing page load times.

Which frameworks are supported?

Many different frameworks have support for this server-side rendering method, including Django, Rails, and Laravel.

How do I start?

Simply follow the basic tutorials for the above mentioned frameworks, while using a minimum of client-side Javascript, and you should be able to get your SimpleSSR site in gear!

Is this a joke?

Sort of, not really. Many developers build SPAs by default these days, even if those applications don't need that level of interactivity. I hope that this serves as a reminder that traditional web apps exist, and can be a lot simpler than building an SPA.
