Laravel 5.5+ helper to generate basic PWA style manifests.
This helps automatically generate a basic PWA style manifest which will help devices install your website to their homescreens, mainly to save headache of having to create these extra files yourself.
It uses browser detection to include the approprite meta e.g Chrome and Android will be provided with a JSON manifest, whilst other browsers will be provided with the meta tags.
Install via composer
composer require owenmelbz/laravel-pwa-manifest
Register the service provider (if the auto discovery does not work) - typically done inside the
app.phpproviders array e.g
Publish the package via
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="OwenMelbz\PwaManifest\PwaManifestServiceProvider"
config/pwa_manifest.phpto your liking, including your app name, colours themes etc.
Include within your
<head>the blade directive
@pwaManifestthis should include the appropriate manifest per device/browser.
If you provide a single source image within the
icon key - we will automatically generate and cache the icon sizes for you. Simply add your source file to somewhere accessible and we'll do the rest for you.
If you want to define your own set of 3 icons, then simply set the
icon key to either
false, then provide the public path to your image assets.
This was built out of an experiment and is very simple and not designed to be a full replacement for custom manifests, feel free to submit any PR enhancements that you feel like :)
