It’s been a long time coming, but finally Discourse can be used as a #pwa in iOS devices.
This is now possible thanks to many changes over the years, some from Apple and lots from us.
After that you get a nice icon for the Discourse instance on your home screen. After clicking on it you will have:
- A dedicated “application” in iOS alt-tab overview
- A full screen experience without the Safari UI
- The ability to browse previously visited content while offline
We plan to enable this by default in the coming days. This is now enabled by default
Why do I have to login again in the PWA?
Because the PWA instance doesn’t share cookies with main Safari on iOS
Does the PWA support push notifications?
