Abstract

Recently, infinite scrolling has become a trend in loading massive data in webpages. This feature allows contents of a webpage to be divided and loaded automatically as a user scrolls through the page. Integrating infinite scroll in webpages, however, can be a complex task. A developer needs to be proficient in client-side programming to design the webpages and server-side programming to be able to load data dynamically. In this study, we propose an approach based on SuperSQL to simplify the integration of infinite scroll in web pages. SuperSQL is an extension of SQL that outputs data extracted from a database in various types of structured documents such as HTML, directly as a result of a declarative query. We extend SuperSQL to implement infinite scrolling in an HTML query output. As a result, developing web pages with the infinite scroll feature can be achieved by running a single SuperSQL query.
