Support offline usage
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Overview

Pad should work offline, so that a good writing experience doesn't rely on having an internet connection.

Implementation

The editor and posts pages should load without an internet connection. These will be easy to convert, since posts are already stored in localStorage.

Open issue: need to decide on how we'll handle posts synced to an account. We may need to cache them locally to get offline functionality.

Came across this video; after traveling to Europe and not having documents written on Write.as available on the plane, thinking again this would be hugely useful.

For some of the same reasons we need {T360}, we should have offline support. The same user that requested T360 lives in New Zealand where internet is "slow and expensive." Our native clients support offline usage, and since this would be a really nice differentiator that fits in line with our product goals, we should support this soon.
