Custom Development

If your website is complex, such as WooCommerce, Learning Management System (LMS), Online Booking/Reservation System, and want to have a personalized/customized Manifest and/or Service Worker solution, so different pages can have different routing strategies, different resources have different recipe configuration, different accounts have different precaching list, everyday has a new periodic background sync list… we can do the custom PWA development for you. It is a premium service. Please send an email to me, so we can have more communication.

I have tried many pWA plugins for our woocommernce website but one of all of them failed to perform and especailly no proper support. Then I find Hyper PWA plugin and it worked well. Support from Rickey is excellent and timely manner. He is very supportive and communication is polite.

Far behind SuperPWA and PWA for WP. Read carefully in the dashboard because some settings are accessible but become chargeable after 90 days.
