Syntax

someURL = ServiceWorker.state

Value

Examples

This code snippet is from the service worker registration-events sample (live demo). The code listens for any change in the ServiceWorker.state and returns its value.

var serviceWorker;
if (registration.installing) {
  serviceWorker = registration.installing;
  document.querySelector('#kind').textContent = 'installing';
} else if (registration.waiting) {
  serviceWorker = registration.waiting;
  document.querySelector('#kind').textContent = 'waiting';
} else if (registration.active) {
  serviceWorker = registration.active;
  document.querySelector('#kind').textContent = 'active';
}

if (serviceWorker) {
  logState(serviceWorker.state);
  serviceWorker.addEventListener('statechange', function(e) {
  logState(e.target.state);
  });
}
