After working hard to successfully integrate PWA support into Windows 10 and Windows Edge Browser; Microsoft has just released PWA builder 2.0, which boasts an all new design and “snippits” for integrating web programming interfaces.

PWA Builder is a free tool available from Microsoft that will help you in the creation or publishing of your PWA for different platforms online or in the command-line.

The new version contains all the same features of the last, with the addition of a Webkit-driven Mac desktop platform and Webkit integration.  Developers can now view their “PWA Builder score” and add cross-platform features like authentication, system integration and UIs via Microsoft Graph programming interfaces.

With the vision to increase the quantity and quality of apps that the Microsoft App store has to offer, Microsoft joined forces with Google and other PWA backers.  Since releasing Manifoldjs and PWA Builder, Microsoft has further joined forces with Mozilla, Samsung, Intel and Twitter.

The 2.1 update is also currently in the works.  Microsoft’s current aims are to provide better support for mobile devices and to allow developers to ship their PWAs to the Google Play Store.
