Offline version for mobile devices
Like cloudant and couchbase. To be able to have local storage which can sync with the cloud once we get a network conneciton.
It should be connection agnostic, use in the same manner if connected or not.
Moving to unplanned (Backlog).
Apologies. This status should have been changed.
This is not on our current roadmap for this semester ending in June. Will again evaluate for H2 2020.
Hi Alex. Need to clarify with you. Are you asking for a CouchDB API like we have with Mongo or Cassandra?
Alexander Trauzzi commented
My suggestion to offer managed couchdb was erroneously merged with this one. Please unmerge them, this idea is not the same as having couchdb. Not even close.
is it available now? We need to use azure cosmos DB in Xamarin projects. and it should work on both Online and Offline mode.
any update here? App Center Data was recently killed and they advised to look to Azure Cosmos.

The App Center Team has been collaborating with the Cosmos DB team to provide the functionality requested in this thread! We recently released a new service in public preview called App Center Data.
App Center Data enables you to persist, manage, and sync data both online and offline for mobile devices. We currently support iOS, Android, and Xamarin. I've recently written up a blog post on App Center Data outlining what this new service does and also detailed our roadmap!

We are looking into using Cosmos DB / Gremlin API for our customer solutions but the lack of offline capabilities may turn us away.

We need this for checking in attendees at events/sessions. If the venue looses connectivity, we need to be able to operate until it is restored.

CHECK - THIS - OUT....!!

Provide offline sync for Cosmos DB and watch the dev masses (particularly mobile) flock to Azure.

This is important feature for all kinds of enterprise solutions and unless it is supported companies will embrace other solutions.
Andrew Hoefling commented
We need a better mechanism for handling offline data with Azure. The current out of the box solutions don't really work except on small scale projects.
Sounds like this would be the solution to that

Having used Microsoft Sync Framework on a previous project, my understanding is as long as you abstract the server side, and respect the Id, CreatedAt, UpdatedAt, Deleted flags on the IDataObject, everything should just work. So if you wanted to get this working with Cosmos DB, you technically can. I think I am going to give that a try, determine the effort and report back.

FYI AWS provides similar feature with many databases support including dynamodb.
Would also be useful for my organization as well.

I am a big fan of Azure Cosmos Document DB. Now I am forced to move to Firebase Firestore (the competitor of Cosmos Docdb). They have offline mobile capability.

Why isn't this being planned?
