Window: appinstalled event

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The appinstalled event of the Web Manifest API is fired when the browser has successfully installed a page as an application.

Examples

You can use the appinstalled event in an addEventListener method:

window.addEventListener('appinstalled', function() { 
  console.log('Thank you for installing our app!'); 
});

Or use the onappinstalled event handler property:

window.onappinstalled = function() { 
  console.log('Thank you for installing our app!'); 
};
