An empty database in everybody's pocket

IndexedDB is not new. It is supported in almost every browser. Without it, the future of progressive web apps are in peril. But there is not a lot of love for it and that needs to change.

We'll investigate why we should love IndexedDB and the kind of apps you can create when you have the power of a database in the browser. Then we'll dive into how to use IndexedDB with a look at both the terrifying API and the friendly libraries that will help us along the way. Together we'll discover a new love for IndexedDB.
