Turn Webflow websites in Progressive Web Apps

Can you add the ability to upload two files a manifest.json file and a serviceworkers.js file to the location where the website is hosted. (these files are extremely small). Once we can upload these 2 files, we can add a couple of javescript lines to the header of each page, and we can start taking advantage of the Progressive Web Apps (PWA's). When a website is PWA compliant, we can start using local cache so websites load even when there is no internet. In Africa everybody access the internet through a phone, but a signal is not always available, when we use local cache they can still see the website without internet connection (of course they need to visit the website before when there is internet)

Also when the website is PWA compliant, it can act like a native app on your cellphone.I exported a website from webflow, added two files Manifest.json and serviceworker.js and added 10 lines of code in the header of each page, and the website became WPS compliant. No other change are needed.
