View Full Version : Can JS be saved for offline use?

06-24-2009, 08:17 AM
I'm going to be out in the middle of nowhere this weekend but I need to study. No internet but I can still use my laptop.

"Study" for me involves taking lots of practice tests on a site that uses JS for it's online tests. Can I save these for later reading somehow?

This application looks neat but I don't think it works on JS. http://www.phpied.com/save-anything-offline-with-a-google-gears-bookmarklet/

JS is client side, so it should come with the saveas options.
Best to check before you go, most forms you fill out require a server side validation to determine score, and that does require a connection. This may or may not be the case in this situation.

This is the wrong forum though, moving from Java to Javascript.

There is no visible saveas option. If I right click on the test window I get these options only: Player Version, Language, Settings..., About Adobe Flash Player 10...

OK so maybe I worded my question wrong and need instead to know how to save offline Flash... but I know the site requires Javascript as well so... I'm confused lol.

About 1 day left for me to prepare for my trip, someone help me with this please!

You visit the site, press “Ctrl/Cmd + S” (or go to the browser’s “File” menu and choose “save as”) and there you can choose where to save the page and what to save (HTML only, with images, etc.). Normally it saves the directly embedded files, too. If it doesn’t for some reason, you can still view the source code, copy the URLs of the script(s) and object(s), paste them in the address bar and then save the files directly.
