To help you out, this write-up describes everything you would need to know about an OpenCart PWA Mobile App & how it can be built & launched without any hassle.
Progressive Web Apps 101s:
Progressive Web Apps are like a blend between a website & a mobile app. On the user end, a PWA appears to work like a mobile app but it actually runs on the internet browser of that device. The ‘Service Workers & ‘Web App Manifest’ gives it the look & feel of a mobile app.
Admins don’t even need to publish a PWA on the app store. A PWA is in fact made live the mobile website of that company & app users download/ install that PWA from the mobile website itself. On a PWA active mobile website, when visitors click the ‘Add-To-HomeScreen’ popup (shown on the screen), the PWA automatically gets installed on their mobile device.
