The Page Lifecycle API is a W3C Web specification that supports a browser's ability to manage the lifecycle of web pages. This web standard enables you to run an application lifecycle to manage resources in order to provide developers with signals about transitions between the lifecycle states. It provides lifecycle compatible APIs that allow key capabilities to work when the application is running in the background or stopped. The World Wide Web Consortium develops interoperable technologies that includes specifications, guidelines, software, tools and more.
Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Games, Analytics, and Media. Highlights include an API for Amazon GameOn Admin Console, Bikewise API for bike incident data, and the Google Page Lifecycle API. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
