Jump Start HTML5: Offline Applications
By Tiffany Brown
Get up to speed with offline apps in a weekend.
Before HTML5, web-based applications had to rely on cookies, servers and Flash to store user data. One of the most exciting new features in HTML5 is the ability to create web apps that work, even when the user’s internet connection doesn’t.
HTML5 apps work independently of mobile operating systems and browsers — meaning you can write your app once, and run it anywhere.
In Jump Start HTML5: Offline Applications, you’ll learn how to set up an HTML5 app and integrate it with a client-side database, with handy examples like a simple journal and to-do list.
What will I learn?
- How to detect when users are offline.
- Ways to create and manage application cache and local storage, including ways to avoid the most common gotchas.
- How to store information using client-side databases.
- Common caveats, including browser support and the limits of HTML5 apps.
