    Change the Name and Short Name of a PWA built with create-react-app


    The name of a PWA is defined in the manifest.json file. We'll edit the default manifest that comes with create-react-app to change the name and short name of our app.

    The short name has a maximum length of 12 characters, and is used underneath your app when it is installed on a user's homescreen.

    The full name has a maximum length of 45 characters, and is used in the Chrome web store, and in the installation dialog boxes, when a user is installing your application.

    If you don't specify a short name, then the long name will be truncated to fit the space.
