What's a Progressive Web App (PWA)?

・1 min read

Hi folks! Thanks for reading.

Just wondering what a progressive web app is, and also what are some good resources to get started if I wanted to read more?

About seven years ago or so, I thought PWAs were just web apps that degraded gracefully when browser support for a feature wasn't available.

How are PWAs different than hybrid apps? Server-rendered/fullstack apps?

PWA is a awesome stuff , it make you browser had capabilities like desktop apps : persistent while offline. which great if you can download it and use it offline ,but it will be fun and complicated. the different PWA is no more than cached apps which auto activate when you open , i thought.
