phpBB PWA

Post by halil16 »

Imagine our phpBB forum sites hosted on phones or computers like an app. Looking at it, it is no different from an application. Yes I am talking about PWA. This is a great feature that will take phpBB forums to the next level.

From Xenforo, the biggest alternative to phpBB, I would like to give this example: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/p ... pp.181448/

The nice thing about this is that when we click on our forum address in the search results or click on our forum link elsewhere, the PWA application opens immediately.

A shortcut link can be added to the quick links. And this PWA application disappears when downloaded. When the normal browser is opened, it may say "Switch to Application".

Also, Push Notifications are just as important. There is a paid phpBB plugin. This shows that this is possible. Already have a Push Notifications idea: viewtopic.php?f=436&t=2245421

I think the settings such as icon, short name, opening screen and type should be taken care of from the ACP.

Yours respectfully.

Why are you voting negative? Can you tell me the reasons? Do they have more damages than their benefits? Difficult to do or need a lot of time?

Because I do not believe that it is something that is a core requirement - as an extension, then maybe

That in itself is enough for me to vote no.

It would be great to have a choice to apply

Those who do not want to open the PWA feature will not. Moreover, this is what I'm talking about only for those who install the forum's PWA app.

Yes I am talking about PWA.
I like to be an informed voter. PWA - What does PWA stand for? The Free Dictionary or PWA - Wikipedia indicate many possibilities.
I'm guessing the three letter acronym (TLA) is progressive web application (PWA).

Most certainly. You can choose to install an extension or not. ;)

I think I should have requested an extension. I thought this would be great for phpBB and presented it as an idea here. Even in Wordpress, this requires a plugin.

Oops. I already have a request: viewtopic.php?f=496&t=2579666
