A quick list of tools for building HTML/CSS/JS apps that work well offline. Ping me at @nolanlawson if I missed anything!
Tools for bundling your HTML/CSS/JS into a native app.
Frameworks designed to work well on mobile devices. A good pairing with the above build tools.
Tools to help you use LocalStorage, Web SQL, and IndexedDB in the browser.
One API, many backends. Mostly server-side, but some client-side libraries too:
- level.js (IndexedDB)
- IndexedUp (IndexedDB)
- localstorage-down (LocalStorage)
- SQLdown (SQL databases, including Web SQL)
- MemDOWN (in-memory)
Hood.ie kind of stands alone in this regard. There's nothing quite like it!
Web APIs that help your app work well offline. Some new and immature technology, but still useful.
