    4.1.1 • Public • Published


    Service Worker with automatic cache management for your PWA.

    How do I use this?

    • Install from npm or clone from github.
    • Copy sw.js to root directory of web app.
    • Edit sw.js, renaming name & setting urls to the required files to run web app offline.
    • Increment the version integer any time a core asset changes to delete a stale cache.
    • Install sw.js in web app (see loader.js).
    (function () {
    	function log (arg) {
    		console.type(`[my-app:${new Date().getTime()}] ${arg}`);
    	if ("serviceWorker" in navigator) {
    		window.addEventListener("load", async () => {
    			try {
    				const registration = await navigator.serviceWorker.register("/sw.js", {scope: "/"});
    				log(`type=serviceWorker, message="ServiceWorker registration successful with scope: ${registration.scope}"`);
    			} catch (err) {
    				log(`type=error, source=serviceWorker, message="ServiceWorker registration failed: ${err.message}"`);

    Command Line Interface

    Install with npm & use the cli to generate a service worker in the current directory.
