Rails Application offline with Data

I have a rails application. It’s quite a large site that allows the
user
to do many different things. One of the things is writing reports on
people. I’m wanting to give the user the ability to lookup people from
the
database and write a report on them if they’re offline. Then have that
report get pushed up to the server database once the connection returns.
Is this possible? I’ve seen some off line gems, but how can I allow
them
to search for different people to look up and attach a report to? If I
need
to provide more information I can… thanks for reading and lending a
hand!

You have said you want them to lookup people in the db when offline,
and later push them to server db when online. Are there two
databases? If so what is the relationship between them?

Currently, I have a rails application and a SQL Server database that it
connects to for my production database. While they’re connected to the
site (online) a user can lookup certain people and then fill out a
report
evaluation on them. I would like to allow them to be able to still look
up
a person and write a report if they are offline. From reading it seems
like I’d need to store them information in HTML 5 local storage, and
then
when it gets the connection back it would upload the data from local
storage back to the SQL Server database. If I’ve read up on this
correctly… does that answer the question?
