  • PWA support in NextJs
    2 projects | /r/codehunter | 1 May 2022
    We tried to use next-offline and next-pwa, but we were only able to precache the static assets.
  • Does anyone have any experience with making PWAs in Next?

    There's next-offline and next-pwa (and some comparison too). But has anyone here made a PWA with NextJS? Now I am not only referring to service workers/offline functionality, but also icons, adding to homescreen, manifest, and other PWA features. Does anyone have any good examples or guides to refer to?
