Progressive web apps (PWAs) are the new hotness, and Google is pressing hard to make them the de facto choice for building mobile applications. But what about iOS, where many of the key APIs are not supported? Cordova/PhoneGap offers a solution, polyfilling the missing functionality. Simon MacDonald demonstrates how to create a PWA that runs on the web, Android, and iOS from a single code base.
Simon MacDonald is a senior software scientist at Adobe, where his current focus is contributing to the open source PhoneGap project to enable developers to create cross-platform mobile applications using web technologies. Simon has over 20 years of development experience and has worked on a variety of projects, including object-oriented databases, police communication systems, speech recognition, and unified messaging. Simon’s been building web applications since the days they were written using shell scripts—he still has nightmares about those dark times.
