    "Modern web standards" like the npm shitfest?

    And then they eventually give up and hire anyone who walks in the door at the moment of maximal need in both cases.

    @Demolishun modern web standards like PWA that's gonna replace whatever native shit facing users you're doing now

    @uyouthe Are PWAs gonna happen?

    Like I really like the ideas behind PWA and google was dedicating some developer advocacy towards it ... but then chrome kinda treated them like second class citizens as far as 'how the fuck do i actually install this from a browser' and I'm skeptical that Google or Apple with their app stores really care / want PWA to be a thing...

    @uyouthe We have users that can not use the web at their sites. So our native stuff is going nowhere. Web is a huge risk in many sensitive industries. In some cases web is not available because of lack of tech in the company. So there is that too.

    @N00bPancakes man. just go to any pwa website today and the install button will literally pop out in chrome on any platform. Also google play accepts pwa now

    @uyouthe Industrial automation is not a corner case.

    @uyouthe
    Honestly, having done several PWAs, and seen N more abysmally wrought instances produced by people without the foggiest idea of what they were doing, I can't have a positive opinion of that sentiment.

    The most likely outcome is we're going to relive the 90s where a large portion of developers were cranking out VB6, and a few wizards wrote C++ to fill in the gaps in capability. This usually happened after the application had utterly gone to piss trying to Frankenstein a working solution. Everything ran like absolute dogshit.

    @N00bPancakes PWAs are not a replacement for native apps, but, if you check your phone, you will find that majority of apps don't use any special native features that can't be done through a PWA. It's easier to make, platform independent, free to distribute, has less access, thus secure. It's a win-win situation.

    @theabbie Oh I agree with that theory totally. A lot of native apps are pretty basic and could be a PWA.

    The browser experience on mobile is kinda garbage, PWA making it just seem like a native app could be a big win in some cases IMO.

    I just worry that Google and Apple really have conflicting financial interests with their stores as far as PWAs go.

    @N00bPancakes google pumped billions into pwa

    @N00bPancakes Even if Apple doesn't allow installable PWA's, it still can use all PWA benefits, offline support, notifications. Apple will have to adopt it, they don't have much option.

    @uyouthe Maybe out of pressure, it does not seem to support it like Google

    @IntrusionCM It's called copulating.

    @c3r38r170 you have a very Christian way of having sex...

    I like teasing, bugging, poking, driving mad and then have an all rage clusterfuck through the whole house.

    Maybe neighbourhood if stuff goes really wild.
