Description abien 2013-06-28 08:32:35 UTC
Creation of HTML 5 cache manifest is a lots of plumbing. NetBeans 7.4 could provide a wizzard (similar to persistence.xml "Add Entities") to create the manifest:
Comment 1 Petr Jiricka 2013-06-28 08:48:39 UTC
Interesting suggestion - sounds like this could best fit somewhere into the HTML editing workflow? Assigning to Marek as the owner of this area.
Comment 2 Marek Fukala 2013-06-28 09:26:04 UTC
Definitively it could fit the editing:

1. each html document w/o manifest set can have a "create cache manifest" hintfix  on the HTML tag. It adds the manifest attribute, creates a manifest file + could possibly generate the manifest "CACHE MANIFEST" section automatically by looking into the dependencies including hyperlinks, or simply all files from web root, or can open up a UI.

2. each html document w/o manifest set can have "add file to manifest XXX" if there's already one (or more).

3. rename/move file could update the manifest.

4. possibly new file can be offer to be added to the manifest in the wizard itself.

5. we can have some basic editing support for the manifest file itself, at least coloring and completion for the file names would help a lot.

#2 should have been ... each html document not in a manifest...
