    Hello Jason,

    Yes, with AppBuilder you can build a totally disconnected app as log as you include all scripts and resources in your application. This is indeed recommended approach for all mobile apps.

    You can use our SQL integrated plugin for storing data on device in a portable database or file-system if needed.

    Hi Jordan,

    Do you have any whitepapers describing how an offline web-application can be built using Telerik tools? How do all the parts fit together?

    We are choosing a framework / toolset for building a web-app designed for a lot of relational data input being done offline. And Telerik's UI controls and DataSource look promissing, but I am not sure what exactly we'll have to buy and how to plug everything together smothly. Can you provide me with some guidance / links here?

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Dmitry

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for contacting us.
    If you are a Windows user you can use our windows client and take a look at the sample apps we provide. Most probably you will find interesting SQlite sample as it stores data on device.

    Our Telerik Platform is web browser based and can be used on any OS in case you are not a Windows user.
    Both clients are designed for hybrid cross platform mobile applications development and include Kendo UI Mobile component.

    We can help you with your evaluation if you provide some more details about the goals you want to achieve and needed functionality.

    Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or need of assistance. 

    Regards,

    Hi Zdravko,

    It's not Jason actually, it's Dmitry :). I joined the conversation, which was closely related to the topic I had been interesed in.

    We are not building a mobile app. What we need is to build a custom people/resource management web-application with a lot of tabular data being edited/viewed, and with some of the functionality being available offline (using a laptop). The client should be able to start a browser offline, open the application, input some data, close the browser, then later go online, open the application again and push the changes to the server. The client is going to host the solution on their private servers, no cloud is required.

    So my question is: what building block I would need to buy from Telerik to build a snappy web-application being able run offline, accumulate the input and synch with the server once online?

    Thanks again!

    Dmitry

    So is there a way to have your Javascript on a webserver and call talk to Cordova that way?  Make your app.js on a server so when the app is online you can just upload your files to the server and new changes will take place to your app.

    Hello,

    @Dmitry: I am sorry, I was misled by the name of this forum thread opener. As I am not aware of our tools designed for web development I suggest reviewing and contacting Kendo and ASP.Net Ajax products support for additional advise.

    @Carlos: I think that there is no way you can change your app dynamically, however you can open external pages which could be located on a server and you can modify on demand.
    Thanks.
