Re: How do I determine what is a Single Page Application or not?

The most straightforward method would be to ask the developers of the site. There is a manual way to detect SPA:

  1. Open developer tools / inspector
  2. Reload the page or navigate to it
  3. Notice the timeline/waterfall of the requests
  4. Click on a link or other interaction you have in concern
    • If the timeline refreshes and causes a page reload then it's not a SPA
    • If the timeline shows the first hits and additional hits after your interaction then you have a SPA.
