If I’m building a Web app and all user data stays local (IndexedDB), how do I ensure durability for the user?

eg they don’t lose work when they clear their cookies etc

Is there an easy way for a Web app to write to the cloud storage of user’s choice—Dropbox, iCloud, GDrive?


I don’t want to make this an Electron app because it’s mobile focused and my primary motivation of using the Web platform is to avoid Apple’s and Google’s app stores.

Do we need a Web standard for writing to local storage and/or cloud storage?
