re: Will desktop #PWAs kill hybrid wrappers like electronjs? VIEW POST


PWAs are gaining popularity because they have definite advantages like small distribution size, zero install hassle, security (from the user's perspective) and ease of update. Their capabilities are surprisingly broad too; I recently built a script editor for a commercial game as a PWA and since the final app resides on the local filesystem loading/saving JSON files was easy. Playing sound files and auto-loading images out of the asset folder was easy. Basically everything was easy and the using framework components (Ionic) for the UI made that part incredibly easy too.

There will always be some things a PWA just can't do (and should not do), but those cases are steadily becoming more niche.
