As an attentive and user-orientated web developer, you may have a clear description of how time-consuming keeping your web apps in tip-top shape when it comes to PWA (Progressive Web App) requirements can really be. However, you can now automate most of that process with the help of a very interesting Google-vetted tool called Lighthouse.
Improve all noteworthy aspects of your web app with the help of this useful developer tool
Basically, this lightweight and nifty Chrome extension helps you improve the overall quality of your website (this means everything from performance, accessibility, to correctness) by running a series of tests that comply with the best WPA practices and by ultimately providing you with a comprehensive report with clear indicators on what can be improved.
To start improving the quality of your web pages, simply deploy this neat extension, click the “ADD TO CHROME” button from it’s Google Web Store page. Just like in the case of the large majority of extensions, Lighthouse smoothly integrates with Chrome’s toolbar and can be accessed from the right side of the address bar.
Well-sorted Chrome extension that allows you to enhance your website’s performance
Click its compact icon, and you are met by a simplistic, modern-looking UI that offers you a convenient way of running the tests mentioned above. Hit the “Generate Report” button, and you should be presented with a full report regarding your website’s PWA, Performance, Accessibility, and Best Practices stats.
The reports can be printed, as well as saved as HTML or JSON quite conveniently by using the Share button on the upper right side of Chrome’s window. It’s also worth pointing out that you can speed up the whole process by accessing the Options section and removing various audit categories that are not of interest to you.
