I downloaded from extly.com (
) website the pkg_workboxforjoomla ver 7.0 so that I can "install" a service worker on a multilingual website build with Joomla 3.9.1 (
). I have tried different combinations on the configuration of the plugin System - XT Workbox but everything failed....Sometimes it shows a manifest file and it never registers service worker. In the Chrome LightHouse I get:
1. Current page does not respond with a 200 when offline
2. start_url does not respond with a 200 when offline : No usable web app manifest found on page.
3. Is not configured for a custom splash screen : Failures: Manifest does not have a PNG icon of at least 512px.
4. Does not set an address-bar theme color : Failures: No `<meta name="theme-color">` tag found.
Even though I have configured the manifest file in the manifest tab of the plugin.....
I understand that you probably don't support the specific plugin but where I can get support for that?
Is there some manual that I can use?
Any other forum member has the same problem?
The truth is that I don't know much about PWA and how the browsers work with that. I just can follow instructions....
Wen you say "The plugin provides the first layer to put a solution in place" what do you mean?
Also when you say "To build a full solution, a full project is required to produce the content and consume it on the front-end in the way that WorkBox requires." what do you mean by "Full solution and a full project"? How do you make those? Any instructions to follow?
WorkBox requires a piece of good knowledge about how PWA works. In particular, what content or assets must be cached, when they must be invalidated, how to deliver the invalidation, etc. A full solution for a CMS has to define all these points. In our view, it is not possible to address all of them with an extension.
