Offline Sync for Progressive Web Apps at IBM Think

With the introduction of progressive web apps and browser APIs like persistent storage, payments, geolocation and push notifications, it's now possible to build full-featured mobile apps on the web platform. One important aspect of progressive web apps is the concept of building your app to be "offline-first." With an offline-first approach, you first design your app for the most resource-constrained environment. This approach provides a consistent user experience whether the user’s device has no connectivity, limited connectivity or great connectivity. One of the biggest benefits of offline-first apps is that they can be very fast, as they provide zero-latency access to content and data stored directly on the device.
