    In respect to BANano, are there any plans to extend it to produce regular websites / webapps that are not necessarily SPAs?

    By this it means multiple pages with different page names? These could also be database driven etc?

    Hello Mashiane,

    have a look at the folder WebsiteDemo. There is a complete example of a website (ChatNoir).

    I checked this, I understand that even (ChatNoir) this is a single page app ie one single html file. Correct me if I am wrong.

    For eg:- To the users/customers, I would like to provide a landing page link, may be www.chatnoir.com/aboutus or to a specific page for specific contents.

    While doing digital marketing, we will be sharing information about a particular product or a particular promotion scheme. In such cases, we will sharing a web link in the advertisements which when the potential customer's clicks will be taken to that particular page which provides more information about a particular product or whatsoever is advertised. I don't think that it will be a good idea to make the potential customer land on the general homepage and then wasting his/her time searching for the content that he is looking for. Instead, if we have a direct web link, then we can directly bring the customer to that particular page/content that he is looking for.

    I am not sure whether this is possible in SPA or not, maybe the whole purpose of SPA is totally different.
    I was thinking that it would be an added advantage if BANano could be used to produce both types ie
    1. SPA web app/website
    2. Multi-page website/web app. So that we can create different pages and not just confined to a single index.htm for the entire Web site/app.

    +1. SPA also seems not SEO-friendly.

    With the router version of ChatNoir, you can pass arguments in the url so the user goes immidiately to the place you intended:

    If you put this in the url:
    And in BANano_Ready(), you catch this url and go immidiately to the About page here (go to Home if the page param is not found):
    Dim ToPage As String = BANano.GetURLParamDefault(BANano.GetCurrentUrl, "page""Home")
    You can make this as complex as you need it:
    e.g. go to the products page, product with id 15, ...
