About this Book


Progressive Web Apps was written to help you use the amazing features of Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to build fast, engaging, and resilient web applications. The book begins by focusing on the basics of PWAs and soon dives into their core features, demonstrating how to implement them on your own websites. In the various chapters, the book dissects existing PWAs that some large organizations around the world have built and explores different tips and tricks that you can use to improve your own PWAs.

Progressive Web Apps is for web developers who are looking to take their web development to the next level. Both beginners and experienced web developers will learn what PWAs are all about and how to use their features to enhance their websites. Although plenty of blog posts and docs about this topic exist online, this book brings together everything in a clear, easy-to-follow format that will benefit anyone wanting to learn more about PWAs. A prior knowledge of web development will help you while reading through the various chapters in this book, but overall you don’t need to be an expert. As you work through this book, you’ll take a basic web application and slowly add new PWA features to it.
