Application Cache

This question is answered

Is there a way to cache a mobile app (Made with appbuilder / rollbase) in the browser. I.E. using the application cache features of HTML5?

Verified Answer
  • After doing some digging I have found the only way to add application cache features to a mobile appbuilder project  is to manually create a cache.manifest file and list all the files that the completed application will use. In addition to this, all html pages will need to be manually edited in developer studio to include the link to the manifest file.

    NOTE: when editing the app in appbuilder and then copying source files to your local machine the manifest file will be removed as the local source is refreshed. It is probably therefore best to wait until the application is finished before creating a manifest file.
