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.
