Progressive Web Apps – Service Workers and Server-free Selfies
On 1st November 2016 at The Financial Times as part of Progressive Web Apps – Service Workers and Server-free Selfies
Developing a progressive web app for Snapchat-like selfies has led me to learn about service worker practicalities, client-side image generation and standalone app limitations. I've come unstuck by a Chromium bug and sparked a WICG discussion. Combining the things I've learned along the way with advice I've received from Google and my colleagues, I'd like to share practical tips for getting started with service workers and PWAs.
