I think there's some confusion here. I am not advocating only using SSR like a traditional monolithic app.

I am, however, advocating having a SPA experience that is also utilizing SSR. The initial render is from the server, and then the client side JavaScript takes over to provide a SPA experience. This means that web crawlers are able to view content on that initial render of any page.

This is probably my fault in not making that clear in the article, so I will probably add that to the "Universal JavaScript" section.

Update: I added a new section to the article to hopefully clear up this confusion.
