Offline Apps and Storage

  • Scott Preston


There’s a variety of ways to speed up your application by cacheing certain amounts of data on the client. Before HTML5 you could only store cookies or rely on the browser’s cacheing mechanism. Now you can implement a variety of ways, by storing long-term data via the localStorage object, session data via the sessionStorage object, or even an entire application via applicationCache. Depending on the kind of application you are writing you may use none or all of these features.
