Threads, posts, and Filter Bar controls should come with the initial response. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Currently when the user requests the page: the page loads, but then the filter bar, posts, and/or threads are loaded async from the client side.

    We should send the initial load state along with the response, and then live updates and client side rendering code should kick in from there.

  • To support ajax browser history functionality, we use the hash portion of the url. Unfortunately, that is not available on the server so we don't know what filters and sorts are applied. So we then have to package that info up as part of the XmlHttpRequest after the page has loaded.

  • Perhaps a 'default' state could be pushed out on the initial page load.

    Then it could be 'cleaned' up with client side state info. Otherwise, that first page seems 'awkward'.
