This talk will introduce you to HTML5 features that can be used to make your Drupal 8 content available offline. Users of the site will be able to access certain pages while in airplane mode or other times when they do not have network access.
We will cover:
- Differences between Appcache and Service Worker strategies;
- Review of Drupal 8 modules that implement these strategies;
- Next steps to turn your website into a very basic “app” which can be installed on the device without having to deal with an appstore (commonly known as a “progressive web app”).
During the talk we will provide code examples that can be used as a starting point for developing your own offline sites.
Although we cover front-end topics in this talk we will look at things through the eyes of a site builder so you can plan your content strategy accordingly.
Basic understanding of HTML and JS, some Drupal 8 knowledge.
