Problem using jQuery with application caching

Postby wavicle » Tue Jul 13, 2010 8:49 am

Code: Select all
<html manifest="cache.manifest">
      <script src=""></script>
         function() {
            alert("jQuery was loaded and is working");

Consider the above code. I am using a manifest file to cache some resources, and I am loading jQuery externally.

It works the first time, and every other time, it says "$ is not defined", meaning that it cannot use jQuery after the cache manifest is once consumed.

Any leads on why this happens? FYI, I also tried hosting and caching the JS file within the manifest and still the same problem persists.

IIRC you need to list external resources in the `NETWORK` section explicitly to load them over the network:

Code: Select all

To include them in the application cache, host `jquery.min.js` on your own server (same origin as the other files), and add it to the manifest file.
