Support » Plugin: Super Progressive Web Apps » PWA Checklist Passed in Lighthouse But No Notification Showing

  • My website passes the PWA checklist when I run the lighthouse audit yet I can never get the Add To Homescreen notification to display. Even pressing the “Add To Homescreen” link in the App Manifest does not trigger the notification. Any ideas what’s going on? The website URL is https://haveibean.com/

    Hi Andrew,

    Good day and thanks for trying out SuperPWA. Seems like all the PWA features are working perfectly at my end. Can you please let me know upon which browser and device you tested the website, so that I can help you out more over the case.

    I’ve tried it on the desktop and mobile version of Chrome and Firefox. Mobile version is iOS. Desktop version of Chrome is 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit). I just don’t see any add to home page notifications on any device…

    Thanks for sharing details. The prompt for Add to Homescreen will only occurs upon Android browser.

    Upon iOS, at this time PWA only works upon Safari browser. As for testing PWA over iOS Safari, please do have a look over our detailed article.

    As for testing PWA on desktop (currently over Desktop only Chrome browser only shows the prompt), the steps to install PWA to desktop Homescreen is entirely different than on mobile. We have another article that will surely help you more on it.

    I wrote my own service worker and it used to show the add to home screen notification about 6 months ago but now it doesn’t work. I thought I’d try you product and I have the same issue, pressing the “Add To Home Screen” link on the desktop version of Chrome in debugger doesn’t generate any notification banner. Do you know what I am referring to when I say the link in the debugger console? When I used to press this link it could manually trigger the notification banner.

    At this moment, the prompt won’t occur when you click a link within our plugin. Like as mentioned in the article you can install the PWA from the browser menu.
