Using Progressive Functionalities to
Enhance Web Apps
Mobility and accessibility have become two of the most highlighted topics for web applications in the past several years. Progressive Web Applications (PWA) improve these by taking advantage of modern web capabilities and coming up with some great features for the end-users.
At their heart, progressive web apps are just web applications. By leveraging the service workers and the manifest functionalities, a PWA offers the user the option of installing it on any device. This benefits the user to have offline access and provides a way to use the mobile native functionalities like a camera or push notifications.
Benefits of Implementing our
Improved accessibility by adding a manifest
the web app manifest is a JSON file that tells the browser about your Progressive Web App and its behavior when installed on the user’s desktop or mobile device. This will enable the users to install the app from both a browser and the app store and access native mobile functionalities like push notifications, camera, or NFC.
Improved performance by adding a service worker
a service worker is a script that your browser runs in the background, separate from a web page.
We will define the best caching strategy for you to lower the time the user can access the data in the application. There are five options to be considered at this point:
- Network only
- Cache only
- Cache First
- Network First
- Stale while revalidate
Reduced development time
compared to traditional native implementations, you can save time, as the codebase is shared between the Android and the iOS apps while still maintaining the native look and feel for each OS.
