Microsoft Edge Blog announces a collaboration with Open Web Docs to revamp the Progressive Web Apps (PWA) section of the MDN Web Docs site. The updated content includes new guides, tutorials, and how-to articles for creating PWAs, which offer immersive app experiences across all devices and platforms.
Revamping PWA Documentation with Open Web Docs
Microsoft Edge has recently collaborated with Open Web Docs to overhaul the MDN Web Docs section dedicated to Progressive Web Apps (PWAs). This partnership has resulted in a comprehensive set of guides, tutorials, and how-to articles that cover everything you need to know about creating a great PWA.
What’s New in the PWA Docs?
The refreshed PWA docs have been updated to reflect new capabilities, best practices, and emerging trends. The goal is to ensure the content is relevant to all developers, regardless of the device, platform, or browser they’re targeting.
“Building an app with PWA technologies is a great way to create an amazing OS native-like experience for all your users, on desktop, mobile, and all device types, from just one codebase.”
From Understanding to Implementation
The new guides take readers from understanding what PWAs are, to making them installable, supporting offline scenarios, and discovering best practices. There are also how-to articles that delve into specific technical aspects of PWAs, such as defining app icons, sharing data between apps, handling files, and triggering app installation.
Intro-level Tutorial for Beginners
For those just starting out with web development, there’s an intro-level tutorial that walks through all the steps needed to create a basic PWA from scratch.
Collaborating for a Better Web
Microsoft Edge is more than just a browser – it’s a platform for web developers. It provides learning content and tools to empower developers to achieve their vision on the web. This includes building APIs, tools, products, and services for developers.
“Documenting the web platform is a huge undertaking that requires time, expertise, and a deep understanding of the web.”
With the revamped PWA docs, Microsoft Edge and Open Web Docs hope to provide developers with the high-quality documentation they need to unlock the full potential of the web platform.
