Lack of interest Replace Content While Keeping Layout On Navigation


Well-known member
Please consider Ajaxifying the whole XF 2.x experience by utilizing JavaScript libraries such as Turbolinks or pjax (pushState + Ajax). These libraries improve the responsiveness of the pages by only replacing the target content on the page (should be possible to make changes in more than one places as well) while utilizing the existing layout and page instance and not going through the CSS/JavaScript compilation on every page load.

This will also allow us to have various widgets like Chat, Twitter, Facebook sidebar like update stream widget on the page without affecting the rendering or loading speed of the page while navigating from page to page.
