Progressive Web Apps (PWA) topic is a hot thing in web development these days. Read more about it – Progressive Web Apps. The beauty and power behind PWA – user can install a web app to his mobile device, without going through the app store. This simplifies update process too, when a new version of the app is available, the user will get it straight away, because it is essentially a Web page, wrapped to look like an installed app.
Inspired by this post – A Simple Progressive Web App Tutorial, I decided to add PWA config into Oracle JET app and test how it works (on Android, didn’t test on iOS, but there is nothing JET specific, if PWA is supported on iOS, it should work).
Oracle JET PWA sample app is deployed on Heroku (PWA will work only if the app is coming through HTTPS) and available under this URL. The sample app is available on GitHub repo. Node.js wrapper for this sample is available in another GitHub repo, you can use it to deploy on Heroku or another service. Read the complete article here.
