SSR is not a replacement for SPA's. SSR tools are used to make SPA's search engine friendly ie. Angular Universal or Gatsby/Express for React. However, there are many real world use cases for SPA's ie. a user focussed web app that needs to be fast and easy to load. Thus, using SSR for search engine bots and other crawlers, allows the use of SPA's while also being search friendly. Of course, as Google and other search engines increase the abilities of their WRS, we can expect JS to be more easily parsed by them. I do not think SPA's are a thing of the past. These have many use cases, and people should not be afraid of them because of SEO issues.
