Create Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

1. Introduction

RPGJS allows you to create PWAs for your game, which enhances user engagement and accessibility. This guide explains how to enable or disable the PWA feature and customize its information.

Works only when building the game and not during development

2. Disabling PWA

To disable the PWA feature, modify your rpg.toml file as follows:

  pwaEnabled = false

By setting pwaEnabled to false, the PWA feature will be turned off during the build process.

3. Enabling PWA

By default, the PWA feature is enabled in RPGJS. To enable it, no additional steps are required.

4. PWA Minimal Requirements

When the PWA feature is enabled, you can customize the PWA information that will be displayed when users install and use the app. Modify the following fields in your rpg.toml:

name = "My Game"
shortName = "Game"
description = "Beautiful Game"
themeColor = "#ffffff"

  src = "icon.png"
  sizes = [96, 128, 192, 256]
  • name: The name of your game.
  • shortName: A shorter name for your game.
  • description: A brief description of your game.
  • themeColor: The theme color for the browser UI.

5. Overriding Vite PWA Plugin Option

You can further customize the PWA behavior by overriding the Vite PWA plugin options. To do this, add the desired options under the [pwa] section in your rpg.toml file. Refer to the Vite PWA plugin documentation for a list of available options.

Here's an example of how to override some options:

  includeAssets = ['favicon.ico', 'apple-touch-icon.png', 'mask-icon.svg']
