How to Build and Deploy Mobile Applications without Paying Apple or Google for the Privilege
Forget the App Stores!
They are too expensive: While Google only charges a one-time $25 fee to join, Apple charges $99/year just for the privilege of hosting your apps there. And even if you are willing to pay, those companies still have veto power over the content of your application.
It's time to say no.
As a software developer, you want your apps to reach as many people as possible, right? Which platform should you target to reach the most users possible? How about all of them? Progressive Web Apps, or PWAs, let you do just that... and without paying a Google or Apple to be in their stores.
In this book, I’ll show you how to take an Angular application and deploy it to the web as a Progressive Web Application. This will make it easy for you to target the web, iOS, and Android, all at the same time, without ever asking Google or Apple for permission.
By the end of this book, you should have all the knowledge and confidence you need to deploy your own PWA that all your potential users can enjoy.

I have built one PWA prior to reading this book. I found the process before to be quite daunting. Having all of the steps in one easy to read reference makes it seem so much more simple than I thought before. Seeing how difficult it is to get into the app stores these days, this seems like a much better option! The book is very engaging and includes lessons learned that the author went through. One of the many things that makes this book stand out to me is that the author even includes a sample application you can use to get going quickly in how to set up a PWA. If you already have an application written in Angular, or in Ionic, this book will give you exactly what you need to get it hosted as a PWA that your users can "install" on their home screens. I highly recommend this if you are just as frustrated as I am with getting apps distributed through apps stores!

I've been building applications with Ionic and Angular for a couple of years. By now, the process is almost automatic. I know where to look and can point out just about all usual pitfalls one might encounter along the way. However, the very fact that the process is almost second nature precluded me from understanding some parts that either previous documentation and tutorials allowed me to complete by following the steps, or that I have repeated countless times and forgotten what they were actually doing. Furthermore, the format of this book lays out the commands, sections of code, and strategies of building a PWA in a way that gives you a holistic understanding of what you need to know plus guidance if you want to look further into a particular topic. I highly recommend reading the book all the way through, even if you already have an existing PWA, but if you need a quick reference it's easy to find things and jump around the book.
