Progressive Web App (PWA) Links

“The web is becoming a platform for lightweight apps that can be accessed on-demand, installed without friction, and incrementally updated” from Twitter’s Lite blog article .

“Progressive web apps (PWAs) are web applications that are regular web pages or websites, but can appear to the user like traditional applications or native mobile applications.” WikiPedia

Google has been talking about PWA’s for awhile and my interest is growing in the PWA approach. “Progressive Web Apps are user experiences that have the reach of the web, and are:

  • Reliable - Load instantly and never show the downasaur, even in uncertain network conditions.
  • Fast - Respond quickly to user interactions with silky smooth animations and no janky scrolling.
  • Engaging - Feel like a natural app on the device, with an immersive user experience.

This new level of quality allows Progressive Web Apps to earn a place on the user’s home screen.”

I recommend the PWA Fundamentals on Pluralsight from May 2017 to get a good introduction.

Here are links that I’ve gathered over the last few months. I will add more as I come across them, so keep checking back.

Service Workers

Network traffic goes through the Service worker first. “A service worker is a script that your browser runs in the background, separate from a web page, opening the door to features that don’t need a web page or user interaction.” ( Google’s introduction )
