A brief about Progressive Web App
With the advent of the latest digital technologies, progressive web application development has reached its zenith and has taken great advantage of the recent technologies to build a new generation of web apps. The PWA developers use modern technology to merge the best mobile and website apps.
Framework specific tools used for PWA development
The progressive web application development process is usually simplified by using the frameworks. Modern and popular frameworks help web developers with more resources and tools instead of writing lots of code manually.
The excessive use of mobile phones has gained a strong foothold in the lives of millions of people and their tendency to browse everything on their mobile phones. So, to provide a solution to this, many progressive web application development service agencies have come up with a solution to give native experience to the users without actually installing the app on their mobiles.
Below-mentioned are the best surveyed and notable frameworks are tools that help in building PWA-
- Angular JS is considered the most mature and full-packed among the other frameworks but on the downside, it also needs high skills to work with because it is tangibly more complicated than its competitors.
- Vue- Vue JS is one of the popular and advanced JS libraries in terms of simple coding and rendering the best services. Unlike React and Angular JS, it is created by a single person and is an open-source framework, driven by the MIT community. Vue enables faster delivery, so it is a common solution for creating smaller projects and MVPs. However, this framework provides enough capability to build dynamic and complex applications. The only downside of Vue being one of the best frameworks is that there are few Vue developers, so if any business wants to build an app with the Vue framework then they might find it difficult in forming a good development team.
- Svelte- This is a new component-based framework that was created by Rich Harries and Svelte is similar to Vue and React JS framework. The most recent version of Svelte was released in 2019 and it was quickly adopted and embraced by the New York times and GoDaddy. The svelte framework is flexible and basic and hence it supports plain CSS and other PWA frameworks.
Hence, it can be concluded in a nutshell that PWA represents an umbrella of technologies and is a step ahead to design concepts and Web APIs that work collectively to provide an app-like experience in the mobile web. According to various research and studies, it has been found that Progressive Web Apps have improved the browsing experience with faster loading and less data usage.
The loading time has also been decreased by adding a very new technology called service workers and streamlined the site for better navigation and user experience. The service workers’ technology of the PWA has also made a difficult task possible, that is the user can easily access their previously browsed site even if they are offline.
