  1. Check syntax of public_path/manifest.json .

  2. when the manifest.json file is edited run the artisan command php artisan view:clear.

  3. Check syntax of sw.js .

  4. check icon names and splash screen match public_path/manifest.json, public_path/sw.js, and resources/views/PWA/metatags.blade.php files .


you can customize the service worker in the file public_path/sw.js By default, the service worker implemented by this app is:

Note that if files are added to the cache when registering the new service worker removes the old cache and creates the new one

//cache name
const CACHE = 'static-' + new Date();

//files necessary for your site to work in offline mode
const APP_SHELL = [

//install service worker
self.addEventListener('install', e => {
    const cacheStatic = =>


//activate service worker an delete old cache
self.addEventListener('activate', e => {
    const response = caches.keys().then(keys => {
        keys.forEach(key => {
            if (key !== CACHE && key.includes('static')) {
                return caches.delete(key);

// Serve from Cache
self.addEventListener('fetch', e => {
        .then(response => {
            return response || fetch(e.request);
        .catch(() => {
            return caches.match('/');

//push notifications
self.addEventListener('push', e => {
    // it is preferable to send the data from a back-end
    const title = "title notification";
    const body = "body notification"
    const options = {
        body: body,
        icon: 'img/icon-72x72.png', //preference use the whole url of the img example:
        badge: 'img/icon-72x72.png', //preference use the whole url of the img example:
        vibrate: [125, 75, 125, 275, 200, 275, 125, 75, 125, 275, 200, 600, 200, 600], // more vibrations
        openUrl: '/', // url where the application will open when clicking on the notification
        data: {
            url: '/', // url where the application will open when clicking on the notification
    e.waitUntil(registration.showNotification(title, options));

//event when giving close notification
self.addEventListener('notificationclose', e => {
    console.log('notification close');

self.addEventListener('notificationclick', e => {
    const notificacion = e.notification;
