Project Westminster gives you the ability to leverage your existing web development workflow and publish your responsive website to the Windows Store. These apps are called Hosted Web Apps. These are Universal Windows Apps that let you leverage your existing web workflows and continuous deployment to publish a responsive web app to the Windows Store. You can start with a preexisting website URL, place it in the app manifest, and create an app targeting the Windows 10 platform. Once installed, your website can integrate with the platform and call Universal Windows APIs from JavaScript.

This bridge enables you to publish your responsive Web App on Windows 10 as a true UWP app. Project Westminster also makes it even easier to integrate your web app with Windows features like Cortana voice commands and authentication. Platform capabilities are only available when your site is running as a Universal Windows Platform App in the App Host on Windows 10.
