The application will take the results of these various API query's and then give the user a simple, summarized result, which involves a fair amount of calculations and conditional logic based on the API response.
What the best practice to do this?
If I do all the API calls on the client side, and I deal with calculations and such there too, that feels cumbersome.
If I do it all on the backend, the calls are not asyncronous and so I am worried the calls might take a while. Though in my use case a 2-3 second wait is probably acceptable as long as there is a "Loading" message. This is what I currently have (halfway through writing all the API calls and the needed calculations)
I could also do the API calls on the client, pass it to the server for calculations, and then sent the results back to the front end. Not sure if that's a practical solution or if it would really solve anything.
