Frequently Asked Questions
With PWA, you can implement advanced features or create a simple web app with a few offline functionality. That is why the costs of building a progressive web app differ vastly. The total cost depends on several factors: project complexity, number of web pages for caching, and developers rates.
To build a PWA, you need to create a web app that includes a service worker, application shell, and web manifest. If you already have a web app, you can upgrade it to PWA. For PWA development, we suggest using the following tech stack: React, Vue.js, Ruby on Rails, and Service Worker API.
To make a regular web application PWA, you need to add a web app manifest that includes basic information about your app like name, URL, logo, etc. Then, you need to add a service worker file and register it. Thus, you get a simple PWA that is accessible offline.
In order to create a PWA with React, you can follow our guide that contains four steps. Your first step will be to set up a simple web app. The next step implies adding and registering a service worker. In the third step, you need to configure the web manifest. And the last step includes testing.
Speaking of mobile browsers that support PWA, we should mention Android Browser, Opera Mobile, Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Internet, Baidu, UC, and QQ browsers. Also, iOS Safari supports PWA partially. Among desktop browsers, it is Chrome, Edge, and Firefox (partial) browsers that support PWA.
