Progressive Web Apps are a great cross-platform application model, even if somewhat restricted in use—until now, that is. Project Fugu is an initiative led by Google, Microsoft, and Intel. Their goal: a more capable web. Home screen shortcuts, sharing files with other apps, clipboard, and file system access are only a few examples of Fugu’s powerful APIs. Are you ready to superpower your Progressive Web App?
In this workshop, you’ll learn how Progressive Web Apps and Project Fugu enable you to develop full productivity apps that feel virtually like native apps, using web technologies. We will implement a simple remake of a productivity app dinosaur: MS Paint. We will first implement the basic functionality, then make the app installable and offline-capable using the PWA APIs, and finally enrich the user experience even further with new Fugu APIs.
