re: Depending the project, would you go for a SPA (front end framework + stateless API) or a MPA? Which one scales the best for 1 000 vs 1 000 000 users?

It absolutely doesn't matter. All that matters is how fast your servers are.

If I'm building a content website, something conceptually similar to a newspaper, I'd go with server-side templating.

If I'm building an app, conceptually similar to a distinct device, I'd go with a SPA.


Any particular reason for not going SPA when building a content website?

Forget that the web exists.

Are you building a newspaper? Go for a website.

Are you building a separate device? Go for a SPA.

SPA is almost always more complex, just think about SSR, proper Open Graph, client-side routing. Why? Just why do you need this to create a digital newspaper? Just because that's how cool guys do it these days?

Think again.
