App Shortcuts API


App Shortcuts API allows installed web apps to provide the users with a context menu to open specific pages or perform specific tasks within the app.

The app shortcuts are defined in the web app manifest file manifest.json


For testing the App Shortcuts, install and add Nectar on the homescreen. Once added, long tap or right click on the app icon, and a context menu will appear. When you press the menu item, the app will open with the page defined in app shortcut url.


You can refer to the manifest.json file. The app shortcuts are defined in this file, which you can modify as per your needs. The icons for these app shortcuts are present in /assets/custom/favicon folder.
