What is pjax?
As mentioned in the website,
pjax loads html from your server into the current page without a full page load. It's ajax with real permalinks, page titles, and a working back button that fully degrades.
I'm planning to use this approach in one of my projects. The main advantages I see are:
- Less perceived load time of the page, thus enhanced user experience. And,
- Less bandwidth consumption and load on the server as only few fragments of content will get requested.
- The back button is not broken in this approach and the content is easily crawl-able by search bots and works for non-js based browsers as well.
I'll post about any problems (if any) I face in one of my later posts.
