It has never been easier to add progressive web app features (PWA) to your WordPress website. It even supports Accelerate Mobile Pages (AMP) and is compatible with OneSignal!

Add to homescreen

Provide an integrated user experience!

Progressive WordPress makes it easy to encourage users to add your website to their homescreen. But that’s not all. It also allows you to control the display behaviour of your website so it will be shown without any browser elements. Just like a native app.

Offline usage

Make your website reliable. Even on flaky internet connections!

No connection? No problem. Progressive WordPress pre-caches all critical assets of your website, as well as all visited resources. So if there’s no internet connection it will serve the resources from the local storage. No more error downasaur!

Push notifications

Send push notifications from the WP Admin interface!

Keep your users engaged by sending push notifications!

You just published new content and you want to let everyone know? Why not send a push notification? Progressive WordPress has an integrated connection to Firebase that lets you manage registered devices and send push notifications to all or selected devices!

** Support for OneSignal**
Since Version 2.1.0 Progressive WordPress fully supports OneSignal. It detects if the OneSignal WordPress Plugin is active and uses their push messaging functionalities instead.

⚡ AMP ready

Progressive WordPress is the first PWA-Plugin for WordPress that also supports Accelerated Mobile Pages!
It precaches required resources, it adds special AMP caching strategies and it registers the ServiceWorker and the Web App Manifest also on AMP Pages.
Progressive WordPress currently supports AMP for WordPress and AMP for WP – Accelerated Mobile Pages.
