PWA IndexedDB


Running under iOS, and probably Android, deleting the bookmark from the home screen does not delete the IndexedDB.

Is there anyway I can detect this when the app is re-added and first run again?



IndexedDB is completely managed by the browser. So it makes sense that if you remove the icon from the home screen has no effect on any data stored in the browser.

You really got me thinking as I have just implemented an IndexedDB solution for a customer, but I don't think there is a way... the problem is for the browser "nothing changed" when you add the app as a bookmark again and run it again. It is still the same endpoint that is used to identify the database.

Thanks. PWA's work very well on iOS but definite problems involving PDF sharing and printing on Android that I cannot get around.
