Progressive Web Application Development
The progressive web application or the next-generation web experience

PWA, abbreviation for Progressive Web App, is an application for displaying a web page with the graphical rendering and user experience offered by a native application. It is available via a secure URL on any type of device and does not require a download or large storage space.

PWAs are developed with common Web languages favoring good indexing on search engines. Each user can access it quickly on all browsers and devices.

In terms of accessibility and adaptability, it is possible to:

  • Browse a PWA while offline or despite low internet speed thanks to cache management via a Service Worker
  • Create a shortcut on the Start screen through a Manifest file
  • Full screen view option for a mobile-friendly rendering

All of this is secured using the HTTPS protocol (TLS certificate).

Finally, offering an optimal web experience with the fewest constraints and steps is a key success factor of new relational models.
