What is Progressive Web App?
Progressive Web App (PWA) is a website that looks and behaves as if it is a mobile app. PProgressive Web Apps are built to take advantage, of native mobile device features, without requiring the end user to visit an app store, make a purchase and download, software locally. Instead, a PWA can be located with a search engine query and accessed immediately through a browser.
The goal of PWAs is to blur the distinction between native apps and the mobile web, by bringing most of the benefits of native mobile apps to the mobile browser. Progressive Web Apps use standards-based technologies and run in a Container. that is secure and accessible to anyone, on the web. They can send web push notifications, work offline and be accessible from the home screen, just like a mobile app from an app store.
PWAs can also take advantage of APIs and browser plugins to ensure that deploying and maintaining a website remains as easy as possible. Another benefit PWAs have inherited from traditional websites is the use of URIs to indicate current state. This allows the web app to retain or reload its state when the user bookmarks or shares the app’s URL.
UI should be correctly sized for the device’s form factor and screen size. In addition, it should look like a native app and be built on an application shell model. The PWA should have few page refreshes, and the app should work in areas of low connectivity or even offline. What’s more, new content should be made available in the app. Because network requests can be intercepted, the app should be hosted over HTTPS to prevent man-in-the-middle ( MiTM ) attacks.
What is the benefits?
Progressive web apps take advantage of the much larger web ecosystem, plugins and community and the relative ease of deploying and maintaining a website when compared to a native application in the respective app stores. For those of you who develop on both mobile and web, you’ll appreciate that a website can be built in less time, that an API does not need to be maintained with backwards-compatibility. (all users will run the same version of your website’s code, unlike the version fragmentation of native apps) and that the app will generally be easier to deploy and maintain.
