What are Progressive Web Apps?

They're enhanced web apps that aim to give an experience
similar to a native app.

Using technologies like:

  • 📂 Local storage
  • ⚡ Service worker caching
  • đŸ’Ŧ Push notifications
  • 🕹ī¸ Indexed Database
  • 🕒 Periodic Background sync
  • 🔮 Many on device level APIs

Perks of Progressive Web Apps

  • 🎉 Cross platform
  • đŸ“Ļ Installable & Publishable
  • đŸŦ Offline Availability
  • 🔍 Discoverable In Search
  • 🔗 Linkable Using URLs

Before we build a PWA

  • 🚀 As fast as a rocket
  • 🔐 As safe as a vault
  • đŸ’Ļ As fluid as water
  • 🤷‍♂ī¸ Preferably not a sub-page

Let's get to work! 🤘

Let's see if it is working 😅
