Laravel And PWA – Welcome ;) There are many articles on how to get laravel to work as a PWA but in this article i decided to use workbox which is the go-to tool for creating any PWA powered apps, while offering a full offline-mode experience to the user. First lets install workbox Next add the module to laravel-mix for the sw-offline.js file you are free to add any configuration you see fit, you can also check AddyOsmani gist to get you started, however here is what i currently have // note that “sw-offline.js” have to be available under the public folder b4 you run the build script or you would get an error. register the sw.js in your main js file Read More up until now we’ve done everything by the book, but what about serving the pages in offline mode ?

Shopware PWA

Are PWAs the Future of Mobile Commerce? Compared to a typical, mobile-optimized web page, progressive web apps may give mobile shoppers a better browsing and buying experience while helping online sellers attract more customers, convert at a better rate, and, ultimately, earn additional sales and profit. It is for these reasons that progressive web apps — PWAs — may be the next phase of mobile web optimization. Not long ago, optimizing a business’s website for mobile users was a competitive advantage. If you took the time to build a responsive web page that would adapt to small screens, deliver fast-loading images, and convert links to touch-friendly buttons, mobile shoppers would reward your company. This was especially true when most of your competitors didn’t offer a good mobile shopping experience.

Now, however, mobile optimization or even mobile-first web design is the standard. It is the ante, if you will, for doing business online. All of these requirements are just the sort of things a PWA can do. PWAs: Familiar Features.

What is needed to make this happen? For this I’m going to steal some information from the pages: Progressive - Works for every user, regardless of browser choice because it’s built with progressive enhancement as a core tenet.

Web Workers ermöglichen Entwicklern Skripte in einem Hintergrundthread getrennt vom Haupthread auszuführen. Dies hat den Vorteil, dass rechenintensive Operationen in einem gesonderten Thread ausgeführt werden können und somit der Hauptthread, der für gewöhnlich das UI bereitstellt, arbeiten kann ohne verlangsamt oder blockiert zu werden.

Web Workers Konzepte und Anwendung Ein Worker ist ein Objekt das mit einem Konstruktor erzeugt wird (beispielsweise Worker()) und eine JavaScript Datei mit Namen ausführt. In dieser Datei ist der Code enthalten der im Worker-Thread ausgeführt wird. Worker arbeiten in einem eigenen globalen Kontext, der vom aktuellen Hauptkontext window verschieden ist. Dieser Kontext ist durchdas Objekt DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope repräsentiert, falls es sich um einen dedizierten Worker handelt (also einen Worker der nur von einem Skript genutzt wird, was der Standard ist.).

Man kann bis auf einige Ausnahmen beliebige Anweisungen ausführen. Web Worker interfaces Worker. IndexedDB. IndexedDB ist eine low-level API für die clientseitige Speicherung großer Mengen strukturierter Daten einschließlich Dateien. Sie erlaubt auch Hochleistungssuchen dieser Daten durch die Verwendung von Indizes. Während der DOM Speicher nützlich zur Speicherung kleiner Datenmengen ist, ist er für größere Mengen strukturierte Daten wenig hilfreich. IndexedDB stellt hierfür eine Lösung bereit. Dies ist die Einstiegsseite der IndexedDB Referenz von MDN — hier stellen wir Links zur vollständigen API Referenz, Gebrauchsanleitungen, Unterstützungsdetails der Browser und einige Erklärungen des Schlüsselkonzepts zur Verfügung. Anmerkung: Die IndexedDB API ist leistungsfähig, kann aber für einfache Anwendungen zu kompliziert erscheinen. Anmerkung: Manche älteren Browser unterstützen IndexedDB nicht aber sie unterstützen WebSQL.
