Isomorphic approach has several benefits, a few are mentioned below:
- Eliminate the FOUC: In the normal Ember, AngularJS or SPA-type architecture, when the user hits the page, all the assets need to get downloaded. This might take some time with SPA applications. But today, most of the users expect the loading time to be less than two seconds. When the content is loading, the page will be un-rendered. This is called Flash of Un-styled Content (FOUC). But with isomorphic apps, you can get the benefits of speed; it helps you to eliminate FOUC while providing a faster experience.
- Shared code: This is one biggest advantage of using isomorphic apps; we will be able to use the same code both on client and also on the server. You just have to create the components and they will work in both the places. While using the systems like ASP.NET MVC and Rails, we will have cshtml or erb views for rendering on the server. We also need to have client side templates like Horgan.js or Handlebars. But with React, the same component works on both the sides.
- Progressive enhancement: It offers progressive enhancement by allowing you to send down the barebones HTML that a client needs to display a website. Later, you can enrich the experience or render some more components on the client side.
Rendering an amazing experience to a user on a flip phone or a 15 inch MacBook with retina display hooked up to a new 4k monitor is certainly a tedious task. React does a lot more than this going beyond sharing the components. When the React components are rendered on the server and the HTML is shipped down to the client, ‘React’ on the client side notices that the HTML already exists and it just attaches the event handlers to the existing elements, you are then ready to go.
