Install PWA from Folder, posted 6/29/2019

I'm working on a project which includes a web app with a service worker and a webmanifest file (a progressive Web App (PWA)). For this particular app, I wanted the app hosted from a subfolder on a public domain I have running. By tweaking the scope and start_url properties in the project's .webmanifest file, I was in some cases not able to install it and, in other cases, could install it, but the app wouldn't open to the right page when I double-clicked the installed app icon.
