Service Worker

The skeleton has opt-in support for service workers through the help of workbox.

To get started, you can create /src/service-worker.ts file to customize workbox and its many modules .

This is how an example service worker file could look like:

/// <reference lib="webworker" />

import { clientsClaim } from 'workbox-core';
import { precacheAndRoute } from 'workbox-precaching';

declare const self: ServiceWorkerGlobalScope;


// eslint-disable-next-line no-underscore-dangle

Now, whenever you bundle your application for production, a service-worker.js file will be generated.

As a last step, you need to make sure to register the service worker using the serviceWorkerRegistration.ts module, see the comment in main.ts for more details.


Remote Sync

For simple deployments, when you just want to upload your files to a remote server, you can use the rsync script.

Note: before using the rsync script, make sure to configure a host in in the "package.json"

npm pkg set config.host="github.com"
