5 places ser­vice work­ers are in use to­day

Web Designer - - Build Progressive Web Apps With Workbox -

Tin­der https://tin­der.com

Tin­der (don’t pre­tend you don’t know what it is) now of­fers a web al­ter­na­tive to its mo­bile app. And guess what… it’s a main­stream app built with Work­box.

Pin­ter­est www.pin­ter­est.co.uk

Pin­ter­est is a great ex­am­ple of us­ing ser­vice work­ers for com­plex caching be­hav­iour on a site with ex­ten­sive func­tion­al­ity. You can in­spect the ser­vice worker in Chrome to see how it’s im­ple­mented.

Un­real En­gine www.un­realengine.com

If you thought Pin­ter­est’s ser­vice worker was com­plex, check out Epic Games’ Un­real En­gine web­site, which has some im­pres­sive vi­su­als and in­ter­ac­tion. It uses sw-tool­box – a pre­de­ces­sor to Work­box.

Google www.google.co.uk

If you’re ques­tion­ing the ubiq­uity of ser­vice work­ers, look no fur­ther than Google it­self, which will in­stall one to cache its static as­sets when you visit its home­page.

Wired www.wired.com

Wired is an­other one which uses Work­box, and is a great place to see the Work­box CLI gen­er­at­ing a man­i­fest of files to cache as part of the build pipe­line.
