What is it?

A JavaScript plugin which shows a message to install the web application on iPhone devices(on Safari browser). This will be useful if you are building a progressive web application. If you don't know what progressive web applications are, head over to Progressive web apps blog by Google


Blog/Documentation about how to use the plugin


Why is it required

Though service workers are not yet supported on Safari, we can still achieve a lot using HTML5 application cache and localStorage. And Safari does support launching your application in a full screen mode using just a meta-tag. (Refer Safari meta-tags to know more).

This is a feature chrome has recently released where it checks that if your web app is using service workers and shows a banner to install the application to the home screen. Official blog by Google

I believe that this is a really cool feature to have and I thought of bringing the same feature to the iOS devices.
