Ep. #18, An Introduction to Service Workers
In the latest episode of JAMstack Radio we examine how Pinterest uses service workers to deliver a better offline website experience.
With a stated goal of providing “the same UX” as the playback clients in broadcast video editors, Jordi Cenzano’s HTML5+JS based video client is, to put it lightly, an ambitious project.
Here’s how Jordi describes the project:
“Years ago I started thinking about how to migrate some of the broadcast services that have traditionally been on-prem at broadcast facilities to “the cloud.” I’m talking about tech like MAM (Media Asset Management) software, NRCS (News Room Computer System), and news editors, to start.
Bandwidth limitations are becoming less of a problem every day, and we’re seeing an explosion of cloud-based CMS’s (Content Management Systems) and API driven cloud-based editing tools. I haven’t found a UI tool that provides a similar UX as a broadcast video editor in the browser, yet.”
