Does anyone know how SoundCloud keeps the audio playback alive when you navigate on their website? Feels like magic.
@lrz You don't really navigate around. It's all one page that fakes navigation. It replaces parts of it when you click links and manipulates address bar to not break linking.
Many web apps do this. GMail. Facebook. Twitter. Even GitHub in a simplest form.
Mastodon does too. Click on different toots and watch the address bar.
@pointlessone Oh wow I feel stupid now :-) Thanks so much for the info.
@lrz You shouldn't. It does feel like magic. =)
@lrz Effectively a single-page web app. Pretty much the same thing Github and Basecamp and a ton of other web things do these days.
@tvdv I guess it had never been obvious to me until I had audio playing :)
Generalistic and moderated instance.
