re: What's the benefit of us maintaining our Progressive Web Apps (PWA) of DEV? VIEW POST


In my view the qualities that make something "eligible" as a PWA are probably more important than being a PWA in the first place. As PWA may or may not become a "thing", but the things that qualify a site to be a PWA are basically:

  • Fast
  • Works in offline scenarios
  • Accessible, and generally good UX.

The details that allow you to call an app a PWA are pretty minimal outside of the eligibility requirements I'd say we should maintain.

Our browser extension switcher works especially well because we load the app super quickly with service workers (which are technically a requirement for PWA to be fast + offline mode)....
