Learn to build great Progressive Web Apps


Extraordinary Robot
Just last week, more than 5000 people attended the very first online PWA Summit, and learned about topics such as bringing PWAs to app stores, new web capabilities, accessibility, offline authentication and much more. If you missed out on the event, you can watch the full recording here. With all these new features and capabilities, PWAs are lowering the barriers (and development cost) to building and delivering high quality software. Even better, PWAs on Windows are fully-integrated in the operating system: users can discover and install them securely on the Microsoft Store and manage them just like any other app on Windows. Plus, new features and APIs are added all the time. You can check our What’s New announcements to stay up to date with the latest, including the new apps page in Microsoft Edge 96. Today, we’re happy to announce the complete overhaul of our PWA documentation on the Microsoft Edge docs website. It’s now easier than ever to get started with PWAs and discover new features. Among other things, you can now learn about how to handle files, URLs, and protocols, display content in the title bar, define app shortcuts, and synchronize in the background. And for people getting started, we have documentation about creating a PWA, adding a Web App Manifest, and authoring a Service Worker. We’ve also added a list of demo apps, with links to their source code, to help you learn more about how to use different features. We hope this new documentation is helpful to you and, as always, if you have any feedback about it, please reach out by using the feedback button at the bottom of each documentation page (as shown below). – Patrick Brosset, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Edge PWA documentation page with the Submit and view feedback for this page button circled.

Discoverability is very necessary for an app to be profitable. However, just because an app is present on App stores doesn’t mean people will rush to download it. App indexing and deep links can prove helpful, but app visibility still proves to be a challenge for organizations. An alarming statistic by app trace states that 60% of the apps on Google Play have never been downloaded.

When creating apps for the App Store or Google Play, developers must be careful to follow all the rules. The App Store is not great for SEO since its listings are excluded from Google search results. PWAs circumvent app stores altogether, allowing users to find them through regular URLs and in search results.

The installation of an app is a huge commitment a user makes, and most users utilize no more than three apps on a regular basis. And there is more. Every click a user is required to make before his goal is reached reduces the conversion rate by 20%. PWAs speed up deployment and remove usage barriers, resulting in higher conversions and engagement.
Progressive web apps are Web Applications that load like regular web pages or websites but can offer users functionality such as working offline, push notifications, and device hardware access traditionally available only to native mobile applications.
