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.

    Finally!


    You can transfer you site to GitHub automated, where you can setup custom scripts OR you can use the intelligent prefetching feature which allows you to have a website available offline without any service worker!

    They should just add the option to access the root directory to make us create a service worker!

    "Reviewed" !!!


    Please let's make this happen! So many clients here in Australia are looking into PWAs at the moment and having this option will provide so much value to me as a freelancer and them as a business.

    I understand that PWA's may not be part of your roadmap nor the company goal, but a simple workaround would be allowing root-domain-level file uploads.

    Guys! This is so simple to build and would really differentiate webflow from other tools. Even competitors like bubble put a focus on this and it should be adopted ASAP by the product/dev team of webflow!
