Resolving Code Execution Sequence for Webflow's Login Screen and Geolocation Permissions

The State Changers engaged in a deep discussion regarding issues related to login operations in Webflow and their subsequent impact on data storing in session storage. They explored the difference between single-page applications (SPA) and distinct web pages. SPAs, such as WeWeb, sometimes provide a smoother user experience because they basically operate in one piece of code, enabling better retention of variables and values between navigations.

The discussion primarily revolved around a specific problem - running two operations simultaneously when the login button is clicked - the authentication process and fetching geographical credentials. The speed at which login happens does not usually allow the latter operation to complete, thus necessitating sequencing - running operations one after the other. They considered switching to a SPA to address this problem but deemed that a bigger operation than required and concluded that improved JavaScript sequencing would be a more effective solution. The plan was to adjust the functionality of the login button such that it initiates the geolocation operation, which in turn triggers the authentication process once completed.
