There are times when a user can't be connected to the internet. When this happens, how do you continue to store data, so they can keep working? Using a local JavaScript-based database is the answer. Instead of choosing IndexedDB or WebSQL, you should go with a wrapper such as PouchDB which can use any of these depending on the browser it is deployed upon. PouchDB runs on all major browsers (including IE 10+). It works with all frameworks such as Angular, React, etc. In this session you learn to build a CRUD page using PouchDB.
