Service Workers

Service workers are the backbone technology behind Progressive Web App. They power offline functionality, push notifications, background content updating, content caching and a lot more of services and applications are herein attached with Service workers.

In other relative terms, we can say that Service worker is the worker script that works behind the scenes, independent of the app, and runs in response to events like network requests, push notifications, connectivity changes so on and so forth.

App Shell

The App Shell is a simple design concept where the initial load of a mobile web app provides a basic shell of an app UI, and the contents of the app are loaded after. It is not a Web API or a framework, but it is the design approach that developers can choose to adhere to enhanced caching abilities of service workers.
