PWAs and Fluent Design

So given that Paul is currently engrossing himself with the ins and outs of developing PWAs, coupled with the fact that he has somewhat of an inside line to Microsoft’s dev timeline, I’m wondering if he (or anyone here) has a finger on the pulse regarding what they might be doing to keep their Fluent Design language alive. Do they have any plans to release a CSS framework, web-specific specifications or something equivalent?

    <p>Actually, now that I look around, perhaps is a version of what I was looking for. I'm currently invested in Vue.JS for UI, but at least with React they are moving in the right direction.</p>

    <p>I bet we hear about their efforts down this path at Build. </p>

    <p>Don't know if this is the correct subreddit to post in, but I haven't found any relevant one, so apologies if I've wrongly posted. With the announcements that Windows 10 Redstone 4 will fully embrace PWAs, and everybody (me included) being more and more excited about the prospect of developing web apps with native capabilities, I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about using Fluent design elements in PWAs ? </p><p><a href="; target="_blank">Tutuapp</a> <a href="; target="_blank">9Apps</a> <a href="; target="_blank">Showbox</a></p>

      <blockquote><a href="#287599"><em>In reply to avencis:</em></a></blockquote><p><br></p><p>I don’t think the Fluent web libraries are fully out there yet. You may want to look at React Native. There is a Fluent ui library available for React Native. PWAs are nice, but some times you need low level access to the hardware. The app I’m working on would be best as a native app I think but I’m building it in React so rewriting for native wont be terrible. Building PWAs with React is easy so if I can get by with just a PWA I’ll do that.</p>

    <p>yes they have! It's called Microsoft Web Framework:</p><p><br></p><p>However, nothing specific to PWA (yet). It's all web though, so no reason it can't be used for PWA.</p>
