I will be travelling to a location where there is no internet availability. I will be bringing my laptop with me. Is there a way to get the Steam Engine software installed in my laptop where I can access the software without internet connection? I just need the coil wrapping section.
UPDATE, March 2018: AppCache has been deprecated in Chrome over HTTP. There are some road blocks to HTTPS support still, so for the time being we’ll have to make do without it.
Try loading Steam Engine on your laptop. Then disconnect from the network, and try loading the site again.
Steam Engine is supposed to load all important pages and scripts into the browser’s AppCache the first time you visit the site. After that, it should continue to work, even when the computer is offline.
Some browsers may stop supporting AppCache over HTTP some time in the future, and only support it over HTTPS. I hope it won’t come to that, because I feel that for a utility like Steam Engine, such a focus on security would be misplaced, and a waste of effort, money, and CPU cycles.
Still, if it does happen, I’ll see if I can buy, install, and enable a HTTPS certificate for Steam Engine, just to get AppCache working again.
