What is Routing?

Routing is the process of determining how an application responds to a specific URL or endpoint. In the context of web development, it means directing users to different views or pages within a single-page application (SPA) based on the URL they've entered or clicked.

Let's break this down:

Single-Page Applications (SPAs): SPAs are web applications that load a single HTML page and dynamically update the content as the user interacts with the app. This approach provides a smoother user experience because it eliminates the need for full-page reloads when navigating between different sections of the app.

URL-Based Navigation: Routing relies on the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) to determine what content to display. When a user clicks a link or enters a URL in the browser, the routing system interprets the URL and loads the corresponding view or component.
