Essential background theory and context

Traditional web applications are usually hosted in a web server and are immediately available to any user at any given time. Native applications are installed on the device of the user, have access to its native resources, and can work seamlessly with any network. PWA applications stand between the two worlds of web and native applications and share characteristics from both. A PWA application is a web application that is based on the following pillars to convert into a native one:

  • Capable: It can access locally saved data and interact with peripheral hardware that is connected to the device of the user.
  • Reliable: It can have the same performance and experience in any network connection, even in areas with low connectivity and coverage.
  • Installable: It can be installed on the device of the user, can be launched directly from the home screen, and interact with other installed native applications.
