I’ve been thinking a lot about progressive web applications. I’ve been thinking about building a new app as a progressive web app instead of a native app (Android/iOS). As a result of this thinking, I’ve been watching videos related to this. As a lover of Angular2 (it’s so awesome!) I think it’d be great to take advantage of that. I already have four apps on the Apple iOS App Store and I don’t want to abandon them, but I am curious how I can make them better as a progressive web app and get that cross platform goodness.
I watched this video this morning and was shocked at the performance numbers they were giving. 19 second load times is a travesty of justice. Where are the standards? Who approved a web page that takes that long to load?
