Progressive Web Applications & Electron

Progressive Web Apps are becoming more and more powerful and bridging the gap between responsive web apps and native mobile applications. Thanks to the adaptive and responsive behaviors of the Kendo UI components you can easily create a web application that works just as well on a mobile device as it does on a desktop browser.

To help ensure that developers are able to create PWAs either with their new applications, or existing applications, we have created several sample applications and resources around building PWAs with many of the flavors of Kendo UI, including:

  • Kendo UI
  • Kendo UI for Angular
  • Kendo UI for React

On a similar note we created several sample applications and resources around cross-platform desktop development through Electron - a framework behind some of our favorite apps that we use in our day-to-day. Today we offer these resources for:

  • Kendo UI
  • Kendo UI for Angular
