  1. This article was very helpful but what if I use some view engine instead of static pages then how I will be able to cache those pages in browser cache please write an article about that.

  2. Can you give me an example of what is giving you trouble?
    In the meantime there should be an article coming in the next couple weeks that covers another way of caching with PWA’s, I hope it will help you 😀

  3. Thanks. This is really helpful tutorial to me. All things work just fine except, when I ran lighthouse on chrome, issue start_url return 200 when offline still red. I’ve done everything in this tutorial, my manifest file is the same in this one. Please help.

  4. When I tried to run this on command line in certs directory,

    openssl req -x509 -out localhost.crt -keyout localhost.key \
    -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -sha256 \
    -subj ‘/CN=localhost’ -extensions EXT -config <( \
    printf "[dn]\nCN=localhost\n[req]\ndistinguished_name = dn\n[EXT]\nsubjectAltName=DNS:localhost\nkeyUsage=digitalSignature\nextendedKeyUsage=serverAuth")

    Received an error, "The system cannot find the file specified"
