In this Bubble tutorial video, the question of whether to build a one-page app or a multi-page app is explored.

When building a Bubble app, developers have to decide whether to build a one-page app or a multi-page app. In this Bubble tutorial video, the speaker describes his personal perspective on the pros and cons of each option.


One-Page Apps



One-page apps are great for quick response, as there is no page reload or flicker when switching between different views. They use URL parameters and the go-to action to display different views. However, one page apps can be difficult to navigate in the editor, especially if there are many views. They can also become unresponsive, especially if a lot of content is loaded. One-page apps are ideal for creating a native mobile app-like experience.


Multi-Page Apps



Multi-page apps are better for desktop or mobile experiences that behave like websites. They are easier to navigate and offer support to customers. They also make development easier, especially if there are a lot of views. Multi-page apps are recommended unless the goal is to create a native mobile app-like experience.


Conclusion



In conclusion, the decision to build a one-page app or a multi-page app should be based on the desired user experience. One-page apps are great for creating a native mobile app-like experience, while multi-page apps are better for desktop or mobile experiences that behave like websites.
