Accelerated Mobile Pages, PWA feature updates, a new generator and more.

Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

Connector for SAP Hybris Commerce

A new integration to SAP Hybris Commerce is available for developers. This connector aims to significantly reduce the complexity for projects integrating with SAP Hybris Commerce version 6 and above by providing an out of the box integration to the Open Commerce Connect APIs.

Add to Home Screen Enhancements

When launching from the home screen, the browser URL bar disappears to create a native app-like experience. Navigation controls are no longer available in this mode as a result of removing the browser URL bar. To offset this, we've revamped our home screen experience to ensure all navigation functionality is still available.

SEO Enhancements

PWAs now provide SEO best practices by default. This update includes ensuring important metadata and meta tags are in place, providing product and breadcrumb structured data, and more!

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)

A new addition into the Mobify platform arrives in the form of Accelerated Mobile Pages. AMP is an open-source technology which aims to quickly serve mobile content and maximize web performance via 3rd party caches. See up to 5x faster landing page load times, and enjoy lower bounce rates on your web apps through this new addition.

Web Push Notifications

New Web Push Clients

New web push clients are available for sending web push notifications. The previous web push clients have been deprecated, in favour of lower complexity and ease of setup.

Developer Enhancements

Mobify Tag version 8

A new version of the Mobify tag is available for projects, bringing us up to version 8 of our Mobify tag. The changes we've made in this version of the tag improve load times of the mobile experience, minimize the necessity for Mobify tag updates within projects, and aim to reduce code complexity and improve readability.

Platform Generator

A new platform generator is available for teams starting new projects, which enables the generation of a new project repository that contains all of the features of the Mobify platform. Prior to the release of the platform generator, individual generators were needed for each major components of the Mobify platform. The new generator setup should reduce project setup times
