Progressive Web Apps use today’s modern web technologies like the service worker API and the manifest.json file to give user’s a better experience. This mostly focuses on user’s accessing their app using a mobile phone because practically everyone is using their phones to access the web and in some cases that is the only way they are doing so. These technologies help users gain access to app content independent of the strength or existence of their network and let’s the app connect to the user whether or not they have the app open, thanks to service workers. The question I want to address in this session is whether or not these advantages are, in fact, advantageous to the users of your app. In talking about each of the benefits Progressive Web Apps bring to users we will talk about different scenarios of when this would be beneficial and when it may be overkill. There has been talk on the twittersphere of why people would make their blogs PWAs, do people really need a push notification every time you make a new post? Probably not. If your app lists housing properties in an area that is in high demand and one just came on the market that matches your user’s criteria, I believe they would want you to let them know ASAP. After discussing these aspects, we’ll step through the code of how to create a useful PWA using the Vue CLI.
