    Guys, what you do is so grate, but sometimes your stuttering makes me closing my browser long before I get to the end of the episodes.

      Stuttering? I’ve never really noticed any stuttering…

    Hi Gents, I was tinkering with this thought of ‘less than 3sec load time over 3g’ vs. the massive JavaScript Apps.

    I think most of the frameworks load an app into an HTML element on a default ‘index.html’ from the server. Within that element ‘div#myapp’ in the DOM we could load some “pre-app” content.

    No more than a tiny background (SVG preferably or image) and some Text. A simple, lightweight bit of content that is “above the fold” and passes the Google page load metrics and the minimal CSS etc.

    This might improve Time to Interactive if we had a simple bit of content and a link to a contact sub-page or some CTA… it also gives any possible non-JS web surfers some kind of fallback display/CTA.

    The content in the ‘app’ element would then have a gentle or even transparent transition into the actual Ember/Angular/Meteor/React App.

    Here is a Horrible app demo
    webpacked react app replaces the div#app content – in Chrome, inspect and throttle the network.
