Offline for web?

I know that Algolia has offline support for Android and iOS.

Any plans to enable offline search for web clients?

Hi Sam,

There is no project going this way for now. I think in general very few webapps are built to work offline, compared to desktop or mobile apps.

Did you have something in mind, a web app you’re working on where you’d need offline search?

Hi Julien

Thanks for your quick response.

As a personal project I’ve been looking into offline enabled (i.e. client-side) search for the web and wondered if Algolia is doing anything with this.

I’ve looked at JavaScript search libraries such as Fuse and ElasticLunr, which work pretty well, but also I’m interested in combining offline (for no connectivity or flakey connectivity) and online (when available).
