I was bored one evening and thought it’d be a good idea to look around and see how to do various stuff with code. I stumbled onto various YouTube videos which showed how to create a web app in Google Chrome.
I decided to have a look and see if I could do this myself. All I needed was a PNG image and a manifest file.
The code I used is below.
As you can see it has different variables but all of them are in standard English. It has a description, a name, and the URLs to which the web app will link to. There is also an “icons” section which sets what icon the web app will have.
It takes about 5 mins to create a web app, and what makes this really useful? Is that many companies are offering a massive pay out of about $500(US) and more just for someone to create a web app. $500 for 5 minutes work, think about that as a career.
You can even create Google Chrome extensions, which does require a little more work but not much. You can check out the excellent video from Gigafide on YouTube for more information on how to do this below.
