Network or cache

The service worker in this recipe tries to retrieve the most up to date content from the network but if the network is taking too much, it will serve cached content instead.

Difficulty

Beginner

Use Case

You want to show the most up to date content but it’s preferable to load fast.

Solution

Serve content from network but include a timeout to fall back to cached data if the answer from the network doesn’t arrive on time.
