Auto Offline Manifest Generator Bookmarklet

I have a new and insanely great idea which I will try implementing tomorrow. Basically, its going to be a bookmarklet and clicking it will parse the page and extract all the files used, generate a HTML5 Cache Manifest, encode it as a Data URL and open up a iframe or window with the manifest parameter set and then the site will be cached for offline!

Actually, this looks technically impossible. That sucks. Same Origin rules suck.

    Es muy buena idea.
    Intenté algo parecido con PHP, extrayendo imágenes de google.
    Funcionó hasta que por motivos de seguridad, quebró

    Great idea, actually I always wanted to do that myself, and I will probably keep saying that for a while :p

    I do think this can be done

    Have you seen minify php group generation script which uses a bookmarklet to collect scripts/css links for minification

    could be tied into wordpress admin bar so you could add page and assets to a manifest file (easily manage multiple manifests – 10mb limit AFAIK)
