Easy Offline-First Web Apps with PouchDB, Electron, and React – Rod Cope
Offline-first web application development leads to faster apps and a better user experience, but is it realistic? It’s hard enough to think about “mobile-first”. And what if your code needs to run on a smart phone, in a browser, and as an installed desktop application? Do you really have time to implement “offline-first” for all these platforms and their variants? Thanks to a combination of open source packages including PouchDB, Electron, and React, it’s now possible to write one offline-first web application that runs everywhere. In this session, Rod Cope will demonstrate how even complex transactions are possible in this new world of high performance, user-friendly, run anywhere, network-optional web apps.
