Progressive Web App

PWA. MDN intro

To make your website (index.html) become a installable web app on mobile devices. Start by adding a Web Manifest json1 file and tells the client and a service worker javascript:

<link rel="manifest" href="/manifest.json">

The service worker javascript will have some callbacks you can use.

A minimal example

index.html

manifest.json

sw.js
