Progressive web apps are a new class of web apps that provide an immersive full-screen experience right from the home screen on mobile phones, just like native apps. But how do they compete with the performance characteristics of native apps? Drawing on themes from his article “Building Flipkart Lite: A Progressive Web App,” Aditya Punjani explains how Flipkart built a high-performance PWA that runs smoothly on low-end devices and works seamlessly even on 2G or completely offline. With all these patterns, the total is greater than the sum of its parts. You end up with an immersive, high-performance web app that works seamlessly at scale and is always up to date.
