Support PWA mode (progressive web app)

This would allow iOS users to add from Safari to the home screen and from then on launch it in a standalone instance of Safari without browser chrome and with cookies separated from the other browsing people do with Safari.

Hi @Daniel_M1,

Super Beginner over here, but I thought it was already set up as a PWA(?):

Would love to know if I used the wrong terminology here so I can learn to use the right terminology for it, but I remember a dev using that terminology:


It may well already be a PWA and just miss some specific markup to signal to iOS that it supports standalone-mode:
