The effectiveness of methods accelerating the process of loading applications of SPA type, including the mechanisms offered by the HTTP/2 protocol, was analyzed. The performance of finished components supplied with AngularJS framework was researched. The study was conducted on a real SPA application. With the help of mini applications implementing the same functionality the performance of different designs offered by AngularJS was also compared. The study used Apache server, Chrome for Linux and Android and browser-perf and h2load tools.
