I think you're correct:

"I built to learn about progressive webapps or PWA"

What is a "progressive" web app? Serious question!

EDIT: Thanks for the explanations!

Google's marketing term for websites that use Service Workers in a manner that allows the site to function while offline. The sites also have to publish a Manifest file with metadata like icons and a start URL to be considered a "PWA."

Before reading, I thought it was going to be an approach to todo lists, but it's merely "progressive" in the "progressive enhancement" sense.

It's essentially a sample app for the offline-first approach to application design.
