That depends on how Rodeoapps sets up the pages - the HTML5 spec  
allows for data to be stored locally on the browsing device via SQLite.

On-Rev is equivalent to things like PHP - it's ALL server-side. I use  
it for a number of more complex utility pages that I'd never have time  
to learn how to do in PHP. Like Sarah says, all you need to do is  
upload .irev text files. The desktop client then gives you the ability  
to debug remotely.

Sarah's site has both information about On-Rev and information about  
the plug-in, two separate things.

I assume that their service is using the On-Rev server to generate all  
the HTML5/CSS/JS files.
