I might be oversharing at this point, but I had connection issue when polling the server while on a mobile device, if the application was in the background. For reason’s I cannot explain. (This is on an iPhone) So I went to my good old pal google and scrounged up a solution.
Here is the wrapper I put on my timer functions that poll the server:
from anvil.js.window import document from functools import wraps def check_visibilty(fn): @wraps(fn) def wrapped(*args,**kwargs): if document.hidden and get_mobile_flag(): print("NOT VISIBLE!") pass else: return fn(*args,**kwargs) return wrapped
get_mobile_flag function was pulled from this beautiful forum
That’s important because the browser works well when not visible or you’re on a different tab.
