Subject Re: [iOS 8] WKWebView moving forward
Date Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:58:57 GMT
Speaking as a user who has an iPhone that’s always running near the storage limit: I’d
hate to see files be duplicate out of the bundle into another location… my phone might cry.

I think we went over that when WKWebview was first released. Copying files was discussed,
but it adds an awful lot of complexity to startup, wastes space, etc. Looks like the local
web server might be the best option, still.

But I guess this gives the option of using web content that the app itself downloads to /Documents
or /Library, so that could be nice. Unfortunate that they hamstrung it regarding bundles tho.
Here’s hoping they’ll change it, but given the track record in iOS 8, I’m not holding
my breath.

Would it be a horrible idea to copy files into one of those folders?
