LINE Front-end Framework (LIFF) is a platform for web apps that run within LINE.

When launching a web app (LIFF app) registered in LIFF in LINE, the LIFF app can get data from the LINE Platform such as the LINE user ID. The LIFF app can use such data to provide features that utilize user information and send messages on behalf of the user.
