Clients.get()

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The get() method of the Clients interface gets a service worker client matching a given id and returns it in a Promise.

Syntax

self.clients.get(id).then(function(client) {
  // do something with your returned client
});

Parameters

id
A DOMString representing the id of the client you want to get.

Returns

Promise that resolves to a Client object.

Examples

self.clients.get(options).then(function(client) {    
  self.clients.openWindow(client.url);   
});
