LiveChat and Single-Page Applications

The technology behind single-page applications (note that the term is often used incorrectly in the context of simple one-page websites) is hardly a new one. Single-page apps rely heavily on AJAX, which allows for communicating with the back-end servers. It means that it’s possible to load data into an application without a full page refresh.

Single-page apps are definitely a thing nowadays: despite their shortcomings they are considered a modern standard. Consequently, there are numerous JavaScript frameworks around for quicker app development.

Chatting in single-page applications

Let’s say, then, that you already have selected a framework for your single-page app, and now it’s time to add a live chat widget.

Not sure if you need one? Read [What is Live Chat for an Online Business](https://www.livechatinc.com/blog/what-is-live-chat/) by Jacob Firuta to see that you do.

LiveChat integrates with the most popular JavaScript frameworks, so you can add it to your application in a matter of minutes.

React

React (also called React.js or ReactJS) is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. We have created a React component to easily integrate LiveChat with your single-page app.

React Native

React Native is a framework for building native cross-platform mobile apps with JavaScript and React.

The LiveChat React Native component is a bit more complex than its React counterpart, but it comes with its own chat UI.

AngularJS

AngularJS (that is, any Angular 1.x release) is a client-side JavaScript framework. Therefore, it makes it possible to generate new pages with no interaction with a server.
