Cache Manifest Basics

Cache Manifest are incorporate application reserve in in the archive's <html> tag:

<html manifest="test.appcache">

Every page with the show trait determined will be stored when the client visits it.If the show trait isn't determined, the page won't be reserved except if the page is indicated specifically in the show file.

The suggested document augmentation for show records is: ".appcache"

Manifest File

Manifest document is a straightforward content record, which advises the program what to reserve (and what to never cache).

The show document has three class :

  • CACHE MANIFEST - It is essential maniefest Documents recorded under this header will be reserved after they are downloaded for the first time
  • NETWORK - It is Files recorded under this header require an association with the server, what's more, will never be cached
  • FALLBACK - It is Files recorded under this header indicates fallback pages if a page is inaccessible


The first line, CACHE MANIFEST, is required:


The show record have three: a CSS document, a GIF picture, and a JavaScript record. At the point when the show document is stacked, the program will download the three records from the root index of the site. At that point, at whatever point the client is not associated with the web, the assets will in any case be available.


The NETWORK segment beneath determines that the document "login.asp" ought to never be reserved, and won't be accessible offline:


An reference mark can be utilized to show that every single other asset/documents require a web connection:



The FALLBACK segment beneath indicates that "offline.html" will be served instead of all records in the/html/index, in the event that a web association can't be established:

/html/ /offline.html

Updating the Cache

Once an application is reserved, it remains stored until one of the accompanying happens:

  • The client clears the program's cache
  • The show document is adjusted (see tip below)
  • The application reserve is automatically updated
