Offline Apps

There were 46 participants in the session.

The minutes are at: http://www.w3.org/2012/10/31-offline-minutes.html

Chaals agreed to summarise methods for packaging applications, and working with data. Here's something of a start on that:

Packaging:

  • appcache (list of URLs to be collected)
  • widgets (XML)
  • Mozilla app packaging proposal (JSON)
  • Chrome app packaging format (JSON)

Data sources:

  • file system
  • Web Storage
  • WebSQL
  • IndexedDB
  • local URLs in packages
  • Get stuff by XHR

(It is sometimes but not always possible to open links too. But that's kind of separate)
