Hi Amin a PWA is a JavaScript HTML CSS app that uses new web technologies to give a Native Experience, especially on mobile. These include but not limited to : Service Workers that offer the possibility of offline use of the App : Asynchronous loading to not have code block the main event loop : Reactive technologies like React Native for Server side rendering using Shadow DOM : New web components that run at near native speeds for Single page Apps : Install to home page, to offer easy launch and notifications
