Create your Progressive Web App (PWA)

The Progressive Web App is the new generation of web apps. More powerful and responsive, it offers an offline experience and direct access from the home screen. 

Benefits of the PWA

Like a standard web app, the PWA can be viewed via a browser (Chrome, Safari...) and no download is required. Nevertheless on mobile phones, it can be more easily accessed by creating a shortcut from the home screen and it offers an offline experience. All this is made possible thanks to the service workers who ensure the caching of the content. This is a good alternative to native formats if you want to create a mobile application!

Example with Chrome Android:

  • Click on the URL to open your PWA progressive-web-app-navigateur.png
