Offline use ability
@jessh Hi, we have been working on different tasks, so we cannot say when we start considering adding this feature.
@korina After quick inspection of the requests made during dataset switch, I believe the online feature would not require ton of work, since the data appears encoded in the jpegs. I do volunteer to help implementing the offline mode. Pretty sure other mariners may jump and contribute as well..
The question is whether Windy will feel comfortable opening a snapshot of the site code, so we can begin collaborating on this feature. Getting started directions on how to setup a development environment would suffice, so your overhead would be minimal.
If opening to the public is something Windy will not do, I am ready to sign NDA and begin collaborating with you under it.
Let me know your thoughts.
@krassif Hello, thank you for offering your help, we will consider it.
Hello, I'love your app, I'm a sailor and I use it all the time. It woudl be grate to be able to display in offline mode at least the last data visualized, keeped in a cache or something like that instead of having a grey map with no info at all.
I really aprecciate your work and i'm thankfull for it!
That would a great addition for using Windy at sea.
In the meantime you can use a workaround to save for instance the 10-days forecast of wind with one model: Just make a video with a screen recorder after pressing the play button. But 5 days are far enough long to keep a good forecast reliability.
