UpUp - Kickstarting the Offline First Revolution
Mobile-First has become the de-facto standard for building modern sites. But in a world where everyone is mobile, an always-on connection isn't something we can rely on. It's time to start thinking Offline First.
Demo & Tutorial
The easiest path to understanding, is to see UpUp in action, and try a quick tutorial.
Now every time your users return to your site and their connection is down, they will see the contents of
offline.html instead of an error.
UpUp requires a secure connection to your site (this is a requirement of service workers, the technology at the heart of UpUp). So make sure your users visit your site over HTTPS (an SSL certificate is free with Let’s Encrypt or via CloudFlare).
UpUp works in any browser that supports service workers. Currently this means:
- Chrome 40+
- Opera 27+
- Firefox 41+
If your users are using a different or older browser, they will simply be unaffected by UpUp. Nothing will break, and they simply won't notice anything different.
