When we switched to using toolkit and toolkit apps for our production entirely, we’ve noted that without internet connection the production is almost entirely handicapped since most things toolkit related require calls to the (external) service. Since internet outage rarely happens this was not a major concern at the time but I’m looking at it a bit differently now.
Yesterday, we had an outage of around 2 hours and the thing is, if at least tk-multi-workfiles2 worked for simple opening and saving of the workfiles the production could have managed to roll on for that period.
I’m wandering about two things:
- could it be that we somehow introduced a dependency on the connection ourselves (through the hooks or something) and the expected behavior should be that the app works even without the internet (even if hindered in some way),
- and if this is not the case, did anyone tackle this problem in the past, perhaps?
Couldn’t find much searching the forums and support portal, frankly, but i could have missed something… In any case, I’d appreciate some input since I’m struggling to think where to start if we were to try and mitigate this problem in any way ourselves.
