Van11y website as a mini-PWA

As this website is served through HTTPS, nothing could prevent it using Service Workers.

Now, the website is working as a mini-PWA, as shown below by the tool Lighthouse, used on this website.

100% to PWA tests on Lighthouse

Concretely, if you browse the website and suddenly you lost connectivity, if your browser allows it, the dark magic of Service Workers comes into action and:

  • if you come back to a visited page, you won’t see any problem;
  • if you try to browse a not yet visited page, the website will display you a special page and tells you that your are offline.

Here we are: it is a beginning in offline management, I hope it will be enhanced in a near future!
