Hi John,

If I know how to build traditional Web Apps. What other technologies are recommended to learn in order to tackle Progressive Web apps?
Let's say, I know how to work with HTML, JS, CSS, a back-end programming language and I know how to deploy to a Web App Server.

Thanks.

From what i see around and happening within my organization

AngularJS as a core JavaScript  framework  is highly preferred among enterprise Java and .NET developers
Building progressive web apps with React is also a better option.

There's nothing else you need. You build Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) using the same development technologies you're already using - you're just leveraging new capabilities in the browser with them.

Thanks for that clear answer.

Then I guess I have to have more knowledge about the different Internet navigators capabilities like responsiveness.
Do you explain in your book what mobile capabilities are possible from the Internet navigators?

No, not really as it's a book about PWAs and not mobile development. What specifically are you looking for?

Remember, PWAs are just web apps that take advantage of special capabilities of the browser that allows the app to do things it used to not be able to do (like run when offline, receive push notifications, etc.). This has nothing to do with mobile as PWAs are browser apps - desktop or mobile.

I'm assuming when you say Navigator  you mean browser. Are you asking about Mobile capabilities like camera, contacts, compass, accelerator, and so on?  If so, those are web standards and have nothing to do with PWAs.

Yes, I was talking about Web browsers.
And I was asking about Mobile capabilities like camera, contacts, compass, accelerator, and so on.

Got the answer.
Thank you!
