Automating a service worker with Workbox 6

"I deployed a service worker - now, I need to buy a new domain" - a well-known joke about the difficulty of implementing your own caching logic. With the arrival of the sixth version of the Workbox library, the trade-off between flexibility and ease of automation of network tasks for PWA is no longer needed. In this talk, I will tell you how to get started with Workbox 6, implement typical functionality for an offline web application, and go further by adding your own caching logic.

Outline
- Using Service Worker API - main challenges
- Back to declarative approach with Workbox
- Using recipes to automate common tasks
- Building our own plugin for maximum flexibility
- Adding Workbox to your app in 5 minutes

The target audience
Front-end developers who have just started getting to build service workers and PWAs, as well as those who already make or maintain PWAs and want to get acquainted with convenient tools
