Naive offline cache for iOS
Dropping this in to an iOS application will allow
UIWebView to work offline.
It doesn't include precaching (although that could be done by bundling cached files with the app) or any smarts around cache invalidation or caching while online. In fact if the device is online it will always use the online resource and update the cached item. The only thing it adds is offline capability.
The cache is assigned to the static
NSUrlCache.SharedCache so add this to your
AppDelegate.FinishedLaunching or similar:
var cachePath = Path.Combine(Environment.GetFolderPath (Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments), "urlcache"); NSUrlCache.SharedCache = new OfflineUrlCache(cachePath);
This will only affect anything that uses
NSUrl such as
UIWebView. So anything that is in .NET world like RestSharp won't be affected. Which is usually what you would want.
It uses Dan Clarke's Monotouch port of [Tony Million's Reachability](https://github.com/tonymillion/Reachability class). Originally this started as a port of Edwin Vermeer's EVURLCache which has a lot more features, but I ended up cutting out just about everything.
