Offline application with Ruby on Rails


#1

I was wondering if anyone out there has had to develop an application
that is able to collect data offline and then sync back up to a hosted
database when an internet connection is available? If you have what
resources out there did you use to create this configuration?

Thanks,

One of the next versions of mozilla is supposed to have offline data
sync capabilities

You could prob. use SQLite and run the DB locally and then either
upload the file for processing or have your Rails app handle the sync
once you tell it that it has a connection, but there’s certainly no
automated way to do it, you’d have to write all the logic yourself.
