PWA Splash screen

Hi,

after some questions in this forum i decided to use Angular instead of ReactJs for my first IONIC App.
After reading a nice book about ionic, i decided to stay with a PWA.
In that book was written, that Cordova somehow is replaced with Capacitor now.

Is there a sample somewhere, how to create a splash screen for building a PWA by using CAPCITOR and IONIC version 5 ?

Best regards

Hi,

PWA (Progressive Web Apps) is web app, as much as I know PWA doesn’t have splash screen it’s only used in mobile apps (Android, IOS).

Even in capacitor documents there isn’t such thing for PWA.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

i could not find it in the docs too.

I can not really believe, that PWAs will not allow a splash screen.
I thought it is a good idea to start programming with ionic integrating a splash screen :frowning:

Well is not supported by default but you can always have your splash screen as loader in web applications, regardless is made by ionic or any other.

Simply add loading to your app then you can call it splash screen if you wish.

Of course you can
I have a lot of PWAs all made in Ionic 4 (Angular 8) with a Splashscreen
I use an overlay on my home page, a CSS animation with keyframes and a vector graphics

you can do complex animations using tools line bounce js or alternatives
I’m mostly using an emerging image which is scaling to the screen size and disappears then

Hi,
Thank you for answering my question.

Do you perhaps have some sample code, how to do that.
Sorry, i am a beginner :slight_smile:
