Why choose Weebly and Progressier for your PWA?

While Weebly is a preferred choice for many when it comes to blogs and e-commerce sites, it doesn't quite match the prowess of comprehensive no-code solutions like Bubble or integrated e-commerce systems like Shopify. However, its affordability and user-friendliness give it an edge.

Is PWA Creation Possible with Weebly?

Though Weebly isn't atop my recommendations for this purpose, one can indeed transform their Weebly app into an installable entity across devices using Progressive Web Apps.

With Progressier, you can effortlessly procure an installation page for your Weebly application. This ensures your users can seamlessly install it across devices - be it iPhones, iPads, Android gadgets, or even desktops running Windows, Chrome OS, or macOS. No changes to your Weebly site are required. Just sign up, follow our steps, and in mere moments, you're set!

Under the hood

Weebly may not have the adaptability seen in other no-code platforms. Instead of enhancing your app with installation and push features directly, we design a specialized wrapper for it, situated on a distinct domain tailored for your app. Refer below for a comprehensive list of Weebly-supported features.

Which PWA features does Weebly support?

Android Installation

Let users install your app on their Android device. It works exactly like a native app.

iOS Installation

Your PWA is installable on iOS and iPad OS. It will open in its own standalone window. Progressier shows users custom instructions.

Windows Installation

Make your app a standalone desktop app that open in its own window. Your PWA can be installed from Chrome and Edge.

macOS Installation

Progressier helps users add your Weebly PWA to their Docks for quick access.

Chrome OS Installation

Enjoy native PWA support for your app on Chrome OS.

Installation Page

A unique page that helps users install your Weebly PWA on their devices with custom instructions for each compatible platform.

Original Domain Installation

Due to the limitations of the platform, it's not possible to install your app as PWA from your own domain. Progressier provides an alternative custom domain for installation purposes that looks like elonmusk.installable.app.

Web App Manifest

A web app manifest is a basic browser requirement for PWAs. Progressier outputs it automatically based on your preferences.

Service Worker

A service worker is the mechanism that browsers use to deliver push notifications. It can also intercept network requests and cache resources. With Weebly, it's not possible to add a service worker to your PWA.

Cache Static Resources

With Weebly, it's not possible to cache static resources. No service worker = no caching possible, unfortunately.

100% Offline-Ready

Without full server-side control over the resources, it's not usually possible to make a site work offline entirely with a no-code app builder like Weebly.

Push Campaigns

Send push notifications to up to 1,000,000 users in one go within the Progressier dashboard or via the API.

Personalized Notifications

This functionality lets you notify a particular user programmatically. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently supported by Weebly.

Connect User Data

With Weebly, it's not currently possible to sync your user data (e.g. emails, names or account types). Bubble is the best no-code option for that.

In-App PWA Promotion

Promote installation of your PWA with a floating action button in the body of your app.

Offline Alerts

In-app alerts displayed when users lose network connectivity. Not available with Weebly.

Request Notifications After Installation

Progressier asks users to allow notifications right after they've installed your app, which generally results in a higher subscription rate

Install & Push Analytics

See in real-time and track over time how users install your PWA and allow push notifications.

Programmatic PWA Creation

Create new Progressive Web Apps dynamically with our API on different domains or subdirectories.

Google Play & App Store Upload

With Weebly, it's not possible to upload your app to Google Play or the App Store as PWA.
