Progressive Web Apps experiment

Build status [Dependencies]() [Dev dependencies]() Coverage Status


GitHub Explorer is a Progressive Web App that helps you explore GitHub user repositories. This project is created for technology demonstration purpose, experiment how a web app “looks and behaves” like a native app.

Live demo:

(currently no desktop layout available yet :-(, so please view this on mobile for better experience)

…or watch the GIFs below:

Overview App Shell (not a GIF) Material animation
gh-e image gh-e-1

Scored 88100 in Lighthouse (auditing and performance metrics for Progressive Web Apps):



  • Change people beliefs on web apps by make it as much “native” as possible with cool technologies like ReactJS and Progressive Web Apps.

Tech stack:

  • ReactJS for UI
  • RxJS for data flow and basic app architecture
  • Web App Manifest for add to home screen, splash screen…
  • Service Worker for offline usage (sw-precache)
  • Animation Performance with FLIP and best practices from this High Performance Animations Blog Post
  • Application Shell Architecture for better user experience
  • Babel for ES6 syntax
  • Webpack for bundle
  • Karma for testing (no test case yet)
  • React Router Page Transition to make material transition effect possible.
  • …and more, please check package.json

This project is bootstraped from plain-react - a simple boilerplate to start a simple ReactJS application.

TODOs: a potentially technical blog post about this coming soon.
