I’ve had a feedback case open for a while now, It’s about having the ability to create Progressive Web Applications (with service worker) to have an offline capability in Xojo Web (2.0) applications and allow them to be installable (on your iOS, Android, MacOS or Windows desktop !).
A progressive web app is nothing more than:
- A manifest file (that holds the base url, logo url, application name etc.)
reference here: https://www.w3.org/TR/appmanifest/
more info here: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2018/07/pwacompat
Currently it’s not directly possible in Xojo Web 2.0 but since it’s launched this would be a great feature. Having a simple “install to desktop” (for desktop) or “install on home screen” (for apps) would mean, no code signing, no developer costs other than xojo license, the same app for ALL platforms and Web App offline use ability (could be limited).
The case is here, if you feel like you want this you could add points to it if your license is active.
Also please leave your thoughts below, perhaps it may be do-able or somebody has done it?
