Novlr is an online writing tool, but we don’t limit ourselves here. We know that our writers like to take their laptops to cabins in the woods, or on long train rides with no connection. We know our writers sometimes like to cut themselves off from the outside world. To do that they sometimes go offline.
So we made Novlr work offline.
Almost everything works exactly the same. Statistics don’t work, but that’s because they need to communicate with our server, but that’s it. Your words are saved in to your browser, so you can close your computer, change tabs, close browser, go for a hike, and come back and they’ll still be there. Then when you go back online, they load back up from the browser and when connected, save into Novlr proper.
You’ll know you’re in offline mode as you’ll get a little message as you lose connection and an offline symbol will stay in the header bar whilst in offline mode.
