#30 — PWA, Progressive Web App, and the future
10 things worth sharing
|Thomas Seng Hin Mak||Oct 13, 2016|
This week, I focus on links and resources on Progressive Web App.
Must watch video: “Progressive Web Apps is the new Ajax” by Chris Wilson.
Any demos? Yes, PWA.rocks. Please note that they won’t work on iOS.
So you want to build a mobile web app? Let’s take a look at the state of HTML mobile frameworks in 2016.
Hope you enjoy the links.
I believe by the time of 2018 or 2019, we won’t have the boundary of web and app. Both the functionality of web technology and performance of mobile devices — I meant Android, iPhone is fast enough — are ready for building web truly like native app experience. And native app APIs still take an important role thanks to the OS level’s specific features.
At that moment, we won’t care which technology to use. We care how both web tech and app API combines to provide the best experience, from discovering, to using, to emerging, to linking between web/app.
Enjoy the week! Enjoy PWA! Mobile web is just at it’s starting point.
Until next week,
