Introduction

Are you torn between using client-side rendering and server-side rendering for your web project? It’s a common dilemma faced by developers, but fear not! In this article, we’ll delve into the pros and cons of both approaches and provide a clear understanding of when to use each method. From performance and user experience to search engine optimization and cost of production, we’ve got you covered in making an informed decision for your web application.

  1. The client’s browser does the rendering, which can make for a more responsive and dynamic user experience and also the server has less work to do.
  2. The client’s browser can cache the HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files, resulting in faster load times on subsequent visits.
  3. CSR allows for more flexibility when it comes to building interactive and dynamic user experiences.
  1. The client’s browser has to do all the rendering, which can slow down the user experience on older or slower devices.
  2. The content may not be immediately visible to search engines, which can impact the SEO of the website.
  1. The server does the rendering, so the user experience is fast, even on older or slower devices.
  2. The web page is SEO-friendly because the content is generated on the server-side.
  1. The server has to do all the rendering, which can be slow and resource-intensive.
  2. The client’s browser cannot cache the HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files, resulting in slower load times on subsequent visits.
  1. GitHub — This is a simple website that doesn’t require frequent updates and is easy to cache. CSR is a good choice for this type of site as it provides a fast and simple user experience.

E-Recruitment Portal

An E-recruitment Portal is a complex application that we have developed on React , It requires frequent updates and real-time data interaction. It’s an application where job seekers can search for job openings, submit their resumes, and receive job alerts, while recruiters can post job openings, search resumes, manage applicants and much more.

How Client Side Rendering (CSR) be beneficial for us?

For instance, the job search page and the job listing pages can be rendered using CSR. As these pages require frequent updates, allowing the client’s browser to do the rendering would result in faster load times, improved user experience, and more flexibility in building dynamic user interactions. The E-Recruitment Portal offers faster load times and an enhanced user experience, which aligns with our specific use case.

  1. BBC — This is a news website that needs to provide fast load times and be SEO-friendly. The site generates a lot of dynamic content, making SSR the ideal choice.

Conclusion

In conclusion, CSR and SSR each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between them depends on the specific requirements of your project. Next.js provides a simple and powerful way to use SSR in a React project, and is a great option for those who want to take advantage of the benefits of server-side rendering.
