Today I have just published my small project based on Rails 3, backbonejs, html5 offline(localStorage, application.manifest), coffeescript, twitter boostrap.
Tests are written using cucumber, rspec. I hope it would be a good example how to write offline applications using rails and backbonejs.
You can find my project following the next link:
Also I deployed example of the app to the heroku.
2 days ago I’ve lost my internet connection at home. But I had very important emails for me on the gmail. But I thought I have offline application for gmail developed by google.

Time to completely client side applications. Yeah, it’s really awesome. But for less complex applications it’s pretty simple to use localStorage for saving synced data.
Also as I see guys in google added syncing process on the background and refresh button for manually syncing by user action.
For opening application they are using html5 application manifest for caching resources like css/js/images. In Rails we are using rack-offline for generating same manifest file choosing files for caching.
