Building Progressive Web Apps (O'Reilly)
Building Progressive Web Apps (O'Reilly)
Wednesday, 08 November 2017

With a subtile of "Bringing the Power of Native to the Browser", this hands-on guide shows web developers how, and why, to develop web apps that take advantage of features that have so far been exclusive to native apps. The features covered by author Tal Ater include fast load times, push notifications, offline access, homescreen shortcuts, and an entirely app-like experience.

<ASIN:1491961651>

By making use of the latest browser APIs, progressive web apps combine all of the benefits of native apps, while avoiding their issues. Throughout the book Tal Ater shows you how to improve a simple website for the fictional Gotham Imperial Hotel into a modern progressive web app.
