Vue PWA: A Progressive Web Application Example With Nuxt

Vue PWA: A Progressive Web Application Example With Nuxt

Has anyone ever asked you:

β€œHey there, kid, want some free money?”

Probably notβ€”if anyone did, you’d probably run away screaming β€œstranger danger”.

And you’d be right to be skeptical. It’s like my dad always told me, β€œIf something seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Well I hate to break it to you pops, but you’re finally wrong about something. Because using Progressive Web Apps is exactly like someone offering you free money. No strings attached (ok, one string attached… but we’ll get to that).

That’s why today we’ll be building a Vue PWA and looking at how they can get you more traffic, more engagements, and high conversions. All it takes is a bit of legwork upfront and from then on, like I said, it’s free money.

Now for some of our more attentive readers, you may be thinking, β€œWait, didn’t you guys just run a post on PWA’s with a Gatsby store?” Yes, yes we did (and thanks for reading that, btw). But it’s nearly impossible to cover all the benefits of PWAs in just one post. Truth be told, we merely scratched the surface.

So this post will go into more detail about why you’d be crazy not to develop a PWA for your site. More specifically, we’ll look at:

  • A quick review of Progressive Web Applications
  • Statistics showing the benefits of PWAs
  • Why we’re building a Vue PWA this time around
  • How to create your own Vue PWA

Nice post! Thanks for sharing.

In defense of the modern web

I expect I'll annoy everyone with this post: the anti-JavaScript crusaders, justly aghast at how much of the stuff we slather onto modern websites; the people arguing the web is a broken platform for interactive applications anyway and we should start over;

React users; the old guard with their artisanal JS and hand authored HTML; and Tom MacWright, someone I've admired from afar since I first became aware of his work on Mapbox many years ago. But I guess that's the price of having opinions.
