How to make webworks application load faster

[ Edited ]

My webworks application loads everytime I open a local page, even if I have open the same page during that same session. I see other applications open very fast. Is there not a way I can make it load faster?  It's quite frustrating to the application loading the same page I just opened seconds ago. Is there where the cache come's useful? Also, is it supported by OS5?


Thanks in advance.

Re: How to make webworks application load faster

Webworks do caching for content items if you don't explicitly ask not to in config.xml.


The loading time is very depends of what you do on page load, do you have any heavy calculations or file access, what API are you using? Try to remove code you suspect as having an impact on performance and check how app loads without it.

You can also use the setTimeout() function to call a function a second or two later.  This effectively lets other javascript code load and processing go and while the function call sits waiting for the timeout to pass.  I use this so that all basic formatting runs immediately and then I load the extra UI objects that the user needs to actually operate the app.
