HTML5 Offline Applications with AngularJS, IndexedDB, and Bootstrap

by Craig Shoemaker

Learn to build an AngularJS application that works just as well when disconnected from the web as it does with a reliable connection to the server.

What you'll learn

Learn how to implement an AngularJS application that includes services that fall back to saving data on the client when the server is not available and seamlessly resumes interacting with the server once a connection is available. Discover how to use the browser's local database (IndexedDB) to store data on the client, how to implement a cross-browser method to detect online and offline states, and how to leverage the Application Cache API to make files available when working offline.
