In that review I said:
"My 2c... The techniques described in that HTML5Rocks post are fine to get you started, but implementing them is not so simple. As usual, the devil is in the details."
Since then a number of folks have pinged me to challenge and ask:
"So, how do you fetch the referenced resources? and what are these details?"
Fair question :) I'm going to address it in a series of posts in the next few days. I'll also describe a few additional issues and tricks to make a mobile Web app really work offline, and some solutions with code snippets.
Here's a draft outline of the next few posts:
- Caching CSS stylesheets
- Caching images
- HTML5 W3C application cache vs a DIY cache
- Monitoring your network connection
