Offline web application

  

Hi all!

I have created a web application which now the client wants to use it offline.
I followed this link: https://www.outsystems.com/forums/discussion/22453/offline-capability-in-responsive-web-application/
which says that we cannot use the responsive web application.

Since the post is outdated, is there any available options in Outsystems now so that we can enable the offline access and once the device is connected to the internet, the data should get synced to the cloud database of Outsystems.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Aditya,

Offline Web Apps is something you really shouldn't want. Mobile Apps can be build to work offline, but with Web Apps it's a huge pain. Unfortunately, as I replied in your other post, it's not possible to easily convert a Web App to a Mobile App (and also, Mobile Apps shouldn't be run on desktops). The best thing to do is inform the client that what they want is technically impossible.
